Are you a survivor of domestic abuse or are you helping one or more survivors? Is domestic violence a cause you care about? If so, I would like to introduce you to two ladies who are helping survivors create new, empowered lives and share how they're making a difference.
Frontline Advocates Carol Wiggins and Kimberly Shears
Carol Wiggins and Kimberly Shears have used Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and other Energy Psychology methods for more than 10 years to help hundreds upon hundreds of women and children navigate the challenging waters of domestic abuse / intimate partner violence recovery.
Much of Carol and Kim's work has been with women and children who are residents of a wonderful live-in transition facility where women receive support for periods up a year as they find their path to new and liberated lives free of abuse.
