For men who have experienced sexual abuse or assault

Here at Living Well we plan to run our next for men commencing Wednesday 21st October, 2015. This group will run for eight Wednesday evenings at Living Well, Buranda. There are currently spaces in this group.

This group is run 3-4 times a year. Each group is different, but it always seems to be of enormous benefit to the men (of all ages) who attend. Two of the Living Well counselling team facilitate the group. We then also run a monthly drop-in group, for men who have participated in previous groups.

Although joining a group can feel more than a little daunting, the feedback we have received from those men who have participated is that it has been very helpful and they would highly recommend it.

    Hi there,

    What a strange coincidence, I was listening to one of your mindfulness meditations as came upon it by chance at lunchtime today while having a sandwich at my desk and saw the advert for the ‘living well men’s group’. I thought oh, there is a resource I can refer client’s on to only to look up the details and discover you are in far off Australia. Love your website and your chillaxing meditations, well done.
