RECOVERY STARTS AT THE POINT OF FIRST CONTACT
Cardiff Women's Aid is the only specialist agency anywhere delivering a ground breaking psychological intervention alongside our crisis IDSVA work.
We were one of the field trial sites for this evidence based and tested intervention which begins to address the deep damage caused by domestic and sexual violence/abuse.
The only 1-2-1 therapy service in the UK for women who have experienced domestic abuse.
This is carried out by IDSVA’s who have been specially trained to deliver the intervention by a Clinical Psychologist.
PATH has been clinically evidenced to be effective in significantly reducing trauma compared to general advocacy. Group work is not always suitable for everyone.
PATH sessions mean women can explore their feelings in a safe environment with their Specialist Psychological Advocate. This can be around depression, anxiety and self-esteem but can explore more deep-rooted issues around childhood experiences, post-traumatic stress and dissociation.
