Post Traumatic Growth After Narcissistic Abuse

Narcissistic abuse is an insidious form of domestic abuse and is trauma to the very core. It can feel like life will never be the same again with feelings of shame and guilt a daily occurrence. Post-traumatic growth is a positive psychology phenomenon that happens when you turn your struggle and trauma into a strength to lead a much deeper, more connected life. Caroline helps others see that a narcissist can highlight all the self-worthiness wounds within the system and actually be an opportunity for growth and awakening.

Clear Paths Story

Claire Louise Chamberlain founded Clear Path to tell the story of the many forms of abuse, survival and healing, through the collective voices of incredible people who escaped and went on to thrive and become beacons of hope.

The mission is to spark a movement towards systematic prevention of abuse, rather than the current reactive approach.

Because "We have to stop just pulling people out of the water. We have to start going upstream and find out why they are falling in." - Desmond Tutu.

We are fighting for regulation of organisations and professionals dealing with abuse daily, fully accessible support for victims and survivors, with sufficient bolstering for vital services on the front line.

Because the current system is not fit for purpose and leaves tens of thousands at risk, vulnerable and feeling abandoned with no support.

At this event we provide resources for those looking to heal, highlight the key issues you need to be aware of to support victims and survivors in your community and beyond and show you how we can take steps to make positive changes.

Together we will incite the action needed for us to stop the epidemic of abuse and its devastating effects.

We can show you the way.

Ignite Your Vision

A session that makes you question how you can Be More, Feel More, and Do More for yourself. This isn't about business or work or the kids, this is about YOU.

What if We told you

What if we told you, that it’s highly likely that you know an abuser? They hide in plain sight within businesses, communities, and families everywhere.

What if we told you, that you know their victim too? The majority stay quiet. They do this out of fear or because they are led to believe that this is for their own good.

What if we told you, that children in homes infiltrated by abusers are statistically much more likely to become a victim, or indeed a perpetrator as an adult? How can they possibly speak up if that life is all they’ve ever known?

How would you figure out who they are?

Can you spot the signs?

If you did, would you know how to support them?

Where to take them to get help?

1 in 8 people are affected by abuse and 1 in 5 of EVERY crime reported in the UK in 2020 were domestic abuse related.

Imagine if this knowledge was spread as widely as abuse currently is? What impact would that have on the affects of abuse in our society?

Do you want to learn? We can show you how.

Take your first Step

When recovering from or being within an abusive relationship it is hard to find clarity and a sense of calm when looking for an escape. Clear Path helps you to find that peace and quiet you need in your head to navigate your way through. The guidance is spot on and as an organisation, 1VAA will be referring our clients to Claire and Clear Path, to get this extra support needed and bring into perspective how to deal with adverse situations and complements the work we do.

Theresa Murray - One Voice Against Abuse (1VAA)

“Claire’s poetry was so powerful, it hit me like a truck - I felt I just had to write a song telling her story, her fears, and also her great strength of character. She is some lady - a wonderful and inspirational warrior!”
