"Stop telling yourself you can fix them."
"I am the daughter of an alcoholic narcissistic father, and married to a narcissistic man. I have been living all my life in being manipulated, gas-lighted, victimized, belittled.
Growing up with a narcissistic parent can leave you scars for life.
The one who should have loved you most can cause the most damage.
The one who should accept you unconditionally can harm your self-worth.
The one who should protect you can instill the feeling of constant unsafety and threat.
This is a group where you can talk, understand and release yourself from the chains of narcissistic relationships.
A group where we learn how to stop the manipulation, the bullying, the hurt.
A group where we learn self-protection, boundaries, self-love.
What to expect
The support group will meet once per two weeks (in the evening) and men and women who have been in toxic relationships (family or relationships) come together to talk, share and heal together with the support of a trained psychologist.
The group will also provide a safe, non-judgmental space where we will support and guide you throughout your individual process.
We will also share additional reading and exercises that you can use in between the group meetings.
FEES: 30€ for each meeting
NO OF PARTICIPANTS: 8 max.
**Your presence means a lot to other people who are counting on your support, so please join us only if you feel attending almost every meeting.**
What they said:
"I've recently joined a new Support Group. I didn't know what to expect but each time I have been, I've noticed that there is a healing 'energy' in the room. People share their stories and situations in a safe way. It's a small intimate group, it feels good to have a window to share with others travelling a similarly difficult journey. Vassia who facilitates holds the group in a very talented way. She gives home exercises that are really causing me to be brave and deepen the process of acceptance."

With her energy and her endless will to help, the support group exceeds our expectations."
