Along the way I became very interested in coercive control - a kind of control that isn't neccessarily enforced through physical violence yet is extremely powerful. To go deeper, I got a job in frontline Domestic Abuse Support Services and began volunteering at my local Rape Crisis Centre.
I also became very interested in trauma as a means to overcome my PTSD.
All of this influences the self defence message I'm hoping to share widely.
My mission is to help people overcome their vulnerability through the powerful, transformative vehicle of TRAUMA INFORMED self defence - no matter their mental health or trauma :)
