ABOUT

TALK Hong Kong is a volunteer peer led group of women / femme survivors of child sexual abuse founded in July 2019.  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.

Meeting monthly, this is an hour to share our struggles and successes, our worries and hopes.  And most importantly support each other in moving forward through a healthy healing process.

We are not affiliated with any religious or government organization.

Who do I think I am
starting this group?

I’m a survivor too.  A couple years into therapy and feeling stable 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.

And like you I was looking for a community of people to talk to.  But when my therapist asked me to research English groups I could join, I couldn’t find any!  When I told her, she knowingly suggested perhaps I should think about organizing something.  She has great timing!

Why the group is called TALK

In my own process the act of talking about my experiences helps me move through them and understand my own mind better.  It has also helped some of my friends and family open conversations about abuse themselves.  It motivates me to think that the more we talk about abuse constructively, the more chances we have of stopping the repeating patterns of abuse and heal the after effects.  But deciding to talk to others openly is a big step in your process and you may alternately feel a great weight shift or become emotionally overwhelmed – sometimes even on the same day!

Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach … It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good … One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul.
