we are all
a work in progress…

We are a volunteer peer led group of women / femme survivors of child sexual abuse based in Hong Kong.  Our aim is to provide a community for English speaking women who would like a safe place to talk to others who are in the process of healing.

Why did I start this group?

I’m a survivor too.  A couple years into therapy and enjoying working toward understanding myself and creating an even more free life for myself.  I am not a therapist and can’t offer you expert support which is why I believe we should all be attending individual therapy before attending this group.  So here I am hoping to create something that feels so needed.  Let’s build something together!

Who is this group for?
