#projectsnowball is a charitable organisation raising awareness by providing: counselling, group support and education both for children and adults affected by paedophilia or child sexual abuse. We aim to do this using person-centred principles that create safety and belonging, so that actualisation of potential can be reached.
We want to unite each unique snowflake, bringing their own precious potential and perspective for difference in humanity. There is no limit to what we can achieve together, in trust, when we create a fresh landscape to build safety. Person-centredness believes in unconditional kindness, congruence (authentic honouring), and empathy for Self and other. If each person finds safety, autonomy and self-governance to navigate life; they can actualise.
We offer online group support for non-offending paedophiles and survivors of childhood abuse, work and school based development programmes, school support groups and counselling, children’s body-autonomy education days and 1:1 therapy by Skype or face to face. We want people to be able to donate to or sponsor our counselling and child-abuse reduction initiatives. We are working with both recovery of victims and prevention of perpetration, aiming to fill in the gaps that aren’t being currently addressed. For example: children’s autonomy to be safe and communicating when not, paedophilia support for perpetration reduction, rehabilitation for those committed to recidivism (and post-justice), recovery and trauma counselling for survivors of abuse, campaigning and education agendas for stigma/discrimination reduction. We need to think differently if we truly want to make difference.
