Own My Life

The Own My Life course is an innovative, creative and educational 12-week course for women. 

It supports women in regaining ownership of their lives when they have subjected to abuse or violence by partner.

This is done through short videos, structured discussions, group and individual activities, and a comprehensive learning journal.

It uses multimedia content to explain complex concepts about trauma and abuse in easy to understand video clips, along with videos which evidence how popular culture reinforces or perpetuates sexism, rape culture, violence, misogyny, disrespect in relationships and abusive behaviour. 

The Own My Story Journal provides women with space for reflective practice, and includes all the information provided throughout the course. This becomes an ongoing resource for women after the course has finished.


The course explores how women can regain ownership of their lives, including owning their mind, body, choices, relationships, world, feelings.

The course includes the follow-on “Own My Future” group which supports women if they would like to begin self-organising in continued support and learning together.

"Be brave and take a step in the direction of knowledge and self-growth. Remember that the easy path is not always the right path, go with your gut, it’s usually right! Join together with other beautiful strong and resilient ladies as we forge a new, healthy current through life."
