Counselling

ShantiWorks offers supportive and nourishing conversations with people about their experiences of pain and hurt.

ShantiWorks specialises in working with people of all ages who have experienced violence by a family member.  The ShantiWorks team hope to create a space that allows for women and children to make sense of their experiences, to develop an understanding of why people they care for hurt them and the many ways in which women and children attempt to stay safe and better their lives.

Through these conversations the ShantiWorks team often challenges mainstream ideas that tend to place responsibility for violence on women and children, that reduce women and children’s experiences to simple ideas such as ‘choosing to stay’ with someone who uses violence. We also bring forward the care and acts of strength and resistance of women and children who experience violence which is important in the process of healing from such pain.
