Safe Shores Post-Termination/Compassionate Induction Therapy Retreat


  • St Joseph's Prayer Centre Blundell Avenue Formby, L37 1PH United Kingdom (map)

Safe Shores Retreat offers counselling and support for those who are struggling emotionally after a termination of pregnancy/compassionate induction. The residential retreats are for women and couples who have been through what is often described as a traumatic experience and are struggling with feelings of grief, guilt, loss, shame, anxiety or depression.

You will have the opportunity to share your story and let go of some of your past, in a safe, non-judgemental environment with qualified therapists within a group setting. We offer specialist post abortion/termination/compassionate induction counselling, help and healing. Whether you terminated the pregnancy due to social reasons or whether for compassionate reasons as a result of fetal anomaly we can help you.

You will be supported as you talk about and express your feelings and you will be led into gentle processes of healing throughout the weekend.

Our retreats are for approximately 6 women over the age of 16 who have been through termination./ compassionate induction. We begin at 9.30am Saturday morning and finish at around 5.00pm Sunday.  Men are also welcome and can benefit from this workshop.

Each of you will have a single room at St. Joseph's Centre, Formby, Merseyside, where all meals are included.

There is also after-care available plus an online support group where we can continue to support you after the retreat, if required.

** At the moment, we can offer FREE places due to having received funding from the Big Lottery.    Please get in touch to see if you are eligible. **

"The gentle and loving processes I experienced on the retreat helped me realise how the guilt I carried was affecting my life.

I now know I am worthy and have the right to forgive myself.

Since the retreat I have been more assertive in my life but more importantly this work helped me to form a stronger bond with my teenage daughter. Such a beautiful gift.

Truly life-changing".
