Our C.L.E.A.N.E.R™ Programme

You may have a family member or friend who is a survivor, They may display some or all of the traits listed below.

You may want to help but not know how. You may be treading on egg-shells. We are here to help. We’re here to help you support them and we’re also here to support you.

Survivors often struggle with low self esteem, they often don’t like themselves, hold a poor image of themselves and may seek comfort and solace in food, alcohol or drugs. They are angry, and frustrated, they often find it hard to trust or sustain relationships.

It may not be obvious but at a deep level they often feel abandoned, unloved, unclean, unworthy and unappreciated.

They want to be loved, they want to trust, they want to belong, they want some peace and they want to find happiness. But very often they are stuck and do not know how to change; they are overwhelmed with life and struggle more than most to make changes.

Low self esteem – Survivors often struggle to speak up for themselves. They find it hard to prioritise themselves. They may be quiet and passive in an attempt to ‘have an easy life’ or they may feel like their opinion doesn’t count so why express it?

Poor body image – Survivors may have a poor body image and hide by wearing baggy clothes. They often don’t like the way they look.

Self Rejection – Survivors may not like themselves very much. They may have ingrained unhappiness with themselves and their life, and may find it hard to show love to others including significant others such as partners and children.

Eating and drinking feelings – Survivors may use alcohol, drugs or good to make themselves feel better or to escape their feelings.

Trust issues – Survivors often have difficulty in trusting others. They are wary and protect themselves by keeping people at arm’s length to avoid getting hurt.

Relationship issues – Survivors may find it difficult to hold down lasting and loving relationships. They may have insecurities which can cause conflict in their closest relationships.

Anger and frustration? – Survivors may have deep seated feelings of anger and frustration believing that the world is against them, and that nothing works out for them. They may get angry over small things and have a pessimistic view of life.

Hang ups around sex? Not surprisingly many survivors find it difficult to have a healthy relationship sexually, they may want to avoid physical intimacy or display inappropriate behaviours.

Survivors who have been abused – physically, emotionally and or sexually may be suffering from many of these issues.

How SOB can help

S.O.B has collaborated with specialist support services professionals to develop a suite of workshops under the ‘Breaking The Cycle’™ umbrella which will help Survivors to move forward and let go of unsupportive thinking and behaviours.

S.O.B’s 8 Week C.L.E.A.N.E.R™ Living Therapy programme is very unique and it takes a holistic approach in empowering survivors to recover from their traumatic lived experiences. The programme works; it’s highly effective and life-changing. Participants learn and take away many practical tools and techniques that they can use in their everyday lives.

Survivors benefit from being in a safe place where they can be themselves and are with others who understand them. For many, it is a huge relief to feel this sense of community and to have this level of support.

S.O.B’s programmes are free and have been developed to improve every area of a survivor’s life including their mindset, health, wellbeing and potential.
