each peer supporter has lived experience of sexual abuse
Men contact Better Blokes by email, phone or through someone they know. A peer worker will then contact you to arrange an Individual or “Face to Face” support session. This session can be by phone or in person. In the session you explore your experiences with a man who has also experienced sexual abuse.
Are the peer workers trained ?
All our peer support workers receive ongoing coaching and training. Training includes IPS ( Intentional Peer Support ) training courses and our own in-house 5 Day Training Course.
Can I get peer support if I am seeing a therapist ?
Peer support is not counselling. You can get peer support while seeing your therapist.
Your peer supporter has lived experience of male sexual abuse. Each man’s experience of sexual abuse is different but your peer will have walked a similar path.
When can I join a group ?
Each man proceeds at his own pace but generally you will move to group attendance after 8 sessions of individual peer support.
