Decus is a not for profit, specialist abuse healing service based at Woodall in South Yorkshire. We provide a highly personal and abuse-specific therapeutic intervention that supports survivors' with their unique healing process. Our specialist skills and knowledge enable us to gain access to the deepest held hurt and pain that became trapped within the body. We work with a combination of ancient techniques and Universal energy, including a blend of other healing modalities, to deliver bespoke healing therapy.
Our specialist abuse healing service focuses on what the body remembers to facilitate healing both the physical and emotional bodies and mend the hidden damage without relying on disclosure, memory triggers, or working through emotions surrounding the traumatic events. We work in tandem or separately from specialist counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, CBT, etc. to enhance improvements to your holistic wellbeing.
We support adult survivors who are ready to rebuild their lives following abuse in childhood or domestic abuse. Our particular specialism is in facilitating healing for sexual abuse survivors' to let go of the peripheral and deeply held hurt and pain that influences their symptoms. It is important to us to gain a trustworthy therapeutic relationship with each person that accesses our specialist abuse healing service.

a) Decus is dedicated to providing trauma-informed, specialist abuse healing to adult survivors. To facilitate their recovery from the deepest held emotion left behind after abuse. To deliver a powerful and alternative healing route in-person and online that could enable key turning points in each survivor's uniquely personal recovery process. Every person is treated with the utmost respect, decency and integrity throughout their healing sessions, regardless of their background, ethnicity, religion or LGBT+.
b) We have unique skills and knowledge of ancient healing modalities that offer a therapeutic difference. They intend to provide a trauma-focused solution to an age-old problem so that survivors no longer have to live with the life-long consequences of abuse that had a detrimental impact on wellbeing. Also, to provide highly personalised and bespoke healing that incorporates canine-assisted healing to maximise the beneficial outcomes.
Our long-term aim is to help change how abuse is dealt with in society. We intend to do this with three approaches.
i) Our innovative Specialist Abuse Healing Package is designed specifically for adult abuse survivors. A longer-term aim of ours is to provide specialist abuse healing to aid the recovery of sexually abused children and the abused dogs via our specifically designed healing programmes.
ii) To help de-stigmatise and remove barriers that potentially stop survivors from accessing the necessary alternative therapies to support their recovery. We do this by sharing ancient healing wisdom and creativity through the Decus blog, articles, self-help books and Lost Dog Art.
iii) To help survivors get the justice they deserve through sharing ancient wisdom about forensics and medical diagnostic techniques.
