Women & Relationships

Healthy & Safe Relationships

What lies at the heart of Supernatural Coaching is supporting women who are experiencing domestic abuse and are tangled in dysfunctional and toxic relationships. Geographically, our target market is global, however, there is a strong focus on the Northern Beaches of Sydney because this is where the practice is located. We have recently collaborated with the Northern Beaches Community Centre in Manly which gives us the opportunity to access and approach government and local services and resources to help our clients who are experiencing serious financial difficulties.

Domestic abuse causes many acute and chronic physical, emotional and mental health consequences including trauma which also impacts the wellbeing of children. Cultural taboos, lack of awareness or ignorance in society around this topic contribute to the increase of the number of cases annually. Statistics show that the highest number of reports come from the more affluent areas such as Mosman and Northern Beaches, including the Upper and Lower North Shore.

The pressures to maintain a facade of a ‘perfect family’ and other values associated with the “culture of affluence” discourage women from leaving violent or abusive relationships or even disclosing that they are being abused or controlled.

The well educated, functioning, and high-income earning women are presumed to have autonomy and the financial resources to leave abusive partners, but more than often experience the most difficult barriers when attempting to exit the relationship due to a number of factors such as financial entanglement and the fear of being dragged through the family court system.

This culture of “affluence,” which highlights materialism, perfectionism, and social status has enormous pressures for families to maintain that appearance. This is especially true for today’s modern woman, the idea of disclosing and accepting they are being controlled or abused and making a conscious choice to remove themselves from the lifestyle that they associate with their identity is overwhelming. It brings feelings of failure, shame, guilt, fear and isolation. Their situation also becomes infinitely more complex when children are involved. Divorced women whose partners had high social, financial status and influence from these situations had experienced ongoing emotional and psychological abuse from the partner, family members, and in some cases, the mutual friends they once socialised with. The separation experience for most of these women was traumatic in itself, and enhanced through an unsupportive response from their friends, family, and community members, further cementing their already lack of self-esteem and confidence. Sadly, this puts in additional barriers in seeking help and support and often leads to reverting to denying the abuse or,  deciding just to cope with it.

I am here to open doors of awareness and am passionate and commited to supporting my clients so they can find the strength and courage to leave an abusive relationship safely and in a way that mimimizes collateral damage, especially when it comes to the children involved.

Women’s Wellbeing & Support

Making a conscious choice to leave an unhealthy abusive relationship is extremely difficult and can be scary, especially in circumstances where children are involved and finances are entangled and used as blackmail. It takes a lot of planning, energy, effort and headspace which is not always easy for the victim who is already feeling overwhelmed, defeated and worthless. 

My experience and collaborative relationship with the Domestic Violence and Family Support unit at the Northern Beaches Community Centre, as well as other government and private agencies, enables seamless referrals to facilitate services they provide such as financial support through Centrelink, affordable housing, and access to other organisations that help clients find pathways to become independent in all areas. 

The coaching programs and workshops offered through the centre are designed to dismantle the narratives of fear, guilt and shame that keeps them stuck in the toxic relationship. My intention is to empower and educate including teaching strategies and creating plans of action to exit the relationship safely ensuring the child’s wellbeing is at the forefront of the process.  It takes courage and commitment to decide to finally leave. The process is complex and every journey is different, there is no one size fits all.

The outcome of these programs ensures clients feel prepared for the journey ahead giving them enough confidence to regain control of every aspect of their life so they can not only cope, but thrive as a sovereign individuals.
