It is time to let you all in on some developments here at SwanWaters. Over the last 6 years, I have poured heart and soul into this organisation, and I have gained so much from my interactions with all of you. What most of you may not have realised is that the organisation was entirely privately funded, from a genuine desire to help as many people heal as we could. Unfortunately, through circumstance beyond our control, that situation is no longer sustainable.
What that means for you? Well, I am not entirely sure, to be honest. I am still trying to process and deal with some of the practical consequences in my life. What I do know is that I need some time and space to reflect and consider how to move forward. So, I am taking a break. All the resources that are on the site, will remain available and the free Facebook group will stay open because I know how important the support is when we’re on this healing journey. Everything else, including the interactive areas of the Healing Academy, will be in hibernation for a while.
So, in the timeless words of Arny (but with a more Scottish accent)
Are you a survivor of emotional abuse? Do life and healing feel overwhelming? Between processing your experience, managing your relationships, considering cutting contact, coping with triggers and keeping your entire life from blowing up in your face… It’s a lot!
We know, because the SwanWaters team members are all survivors, and we have been through the highs and lows of healing. We have created The Healing Academy to help you navigate your healing journey. We share the skills we learned while coming to terms with our dysfunctional past, and share how we took our own lives from permanent survival mode to life-affirming tranquillity.
The Healing Academy will empower you to make the right choices for your journey. You’ll learn how to support your healing in ways that suit your personality and situation. You’ll learn super practical skills to cope with triggers and memories. You’ll be able to build healthy relationships with yourself and the people around you. And, we’ll even teach you skills to help you get your life back on track.
They say we repeat what we do not heal, and they are right. If we keep following the same patterns, having the same thoughts, we will end up in different versions of the same situation. Doing the work required to move beyond toxic, traumatic and dysfunctional relationships is hard. But doing this work will prevent you from repeating the same patterns over and over again.
