How we can help

Person-centred support

Our version of person-centred is that we support the clients with whatever their presenting issues are.

We support males for as long as their presenting needs still exist however, we do not build dependency but equally we don’t act in a modular way to say there is a set amount of sessions.

Recognising characteristics of healthy/unhealthy relationships

How else we can help

Male Domestic Abuse Peer Support Group and Legal Support

Males who are experiencing domestic abuse, or who have left an abusive relationship, can meet up and speak with likeminded males for peer support, as well as speaking to our therapeutic advisors. Clients feedback that being able to speak to therapists, and peers who have come out of abusive relationships acting as a mentor is a powerful and fundamental part of their recovery.

We offer support for any males who require legal advice in relation to domestic abuse or child contact issues. We work closely with our legal partner, a local solicitor company, that specialises in family law.

Campaigning, Awareness Raising and Eradicating Stigma

The PLF has a very extensive network of supporters who were all fiends of Paul Lavelle. It’s this network of family and friends that continues to campaign and raise awareness to male domestic abuse through various fund-raising activities and events. We strive to eradicate the stigma involved with males speaking out about domestic abuse and mental health and wellbeing concerns in general.
