The PACE Programme

Nexus supports individuals impacted by sexual abuse and abusive relationships in Northern Ireland.  They have recently launched P.A.C.E. - a trauma-informed resilience and recovery programme for individuals aged 18+, who identify as male at the point of referral and are survivors of one or more abusive relationships.  P.A.C.E. stands for Patience, Acceptance, Connection and Empowerment.  Services include individual counselling, therapeutic peer support, an 8-week recovery programme and self-help resources.  The Programme may be suitable if you’ve been subjected to or impacted by emotional, financial, physical, psychological, sexual, technological and/or verbal abuse, and/or coercive and controlling behaviour from a current or former intimate partner, family member or carer.  Find out more at: or by calling 028 9032 6803.  This programme may be suitable if you’re in the post-crisis, recovery stage of your journey.  However, if you’re in crisis, contact the Domestic and Sexual Abuse Helpline on 0808 802 1414 or via
