What we're about

Hello and welcome everyone,

This is a support group for survivors from discovery to recovery of narcissistic abuse whether it be from a parent, partner or colleague.

My narcissist was my father, 3 years ago he had invited himself to stay with me for 6 weeks and by the time he had left I was a nervous wreck, had a breakdown and was signed off work for a couple of months. I booked myself into therapy and with the help of a fantastic therapist, I realised that my father who I had previously called "difficult" and continuously made excuses for his behaviour towards me, was actually "abusive"! After googling controlling behaviour and realising my father ticked all of the criteria of someone with Narcissist Personality Disorder. I researched the hell out of NPD and symptoms of narcissistic abuse, cut off all contact with him and my journey as an advocate for survivors of narcissistic abuse began.

The journey from discovery to recovery can be very frightening, isolating and extremely difficult to articulate to anyone who has been fortunate enough not to have a narcissist in their life.

In our previous organiser Agnes's wonderful words "I fully understand the roller coaster of emotions and sense of isolation we can experience, as we are often called crazy, hyper-sensitive and gas lighted along the way . I believe a key part within the healing process is to exchange personal stories with those who have an understanding of the pain that narcissistic abuse can cause. This validation is often of vital importance in our recovery process from narcissistic abuse"

I hope this group can support you along the long road from discovery to recovery to thriving from this hideous, misunderstood, devious personality disorder and remember it is their shame, guilt and disgusting behaviour to carry, not yours.
