Decus is not about profit: It is a small and sustainable specialist abuse healing therapy provider based at Woodall in South Yorkshire. We facilitate a highly personal and abuse-specific therapeutic intervention that supports survivors' with their unique recovery process. Our specialist skills and ancient wisdom enable us to gain access to the deepest held hurt and pain that became trapped within the body. We work with a blend of mind-body-soul techniques and Universal energy to deliver bespoke body-oriented therapy with a therapeutic difference.
Our specialist abuse healing focuses on what the body remembers to facilitate healing of the hidden damage without relying on disclosure, memory triggers, or working through emotions surrounding the traumatic events. We work collaboratively with or independently from specialist counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, CBT, etc. that you might be accessing at the moment to enhance improvements to your holistic wellbeing.
We support adult survivors who are ready to move on with their lives following abuse in childhood or domestic abuse. Our particular specialism is body-oriented therapy to facilitate healing for sexual abuse survivors' enabling them to let go of the peripheral and deeply held hurt and pain that influences their symptoms. It is important to us to build a trusted therapeutic relationship that permits a mutual interoception and connectedness with each individual to maximise the specialist abuse healing.

a) Decus is committed to providing trauma-informed, specialist abuse healing to adult survivors. To facilitate their recovery from the deepest held emotion left behind after abuse by a unique blend of body-oriented therapy. 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.
