The Sanctuary – Women and Children’s Refuge

Empowering Women and Children Escaping Domestic Violence

The Sanctuary for women and children is very close to Lynda’s heart due to her very personal experience of her own mother being at the receiving end of domestic violence.

Possessing an intimate knowledge of the emotional challenges in the life of women who have been or are in a domestic violence situation, from her own mother to the hundreds of women Lynda has worked with she places a huge importance on empowerment.

Empowerment means having power and authority over your own life.  Having the confidence and self-esteem to live life on your own terms.  Breaking free from the self-destructive patterns of the past and living a life of personal empowerment with love, peace and joy the theme in their lives.

Lynda is delighted to offer her services free of charge to The Sanctuary for Women and Children as her way of giving back.  Full day workshops and consultations which Lynda provides, assist the women to more empowered lives and a greater level of happiness and enjoyment than they may have experienced for a long time.
