The PHOENIX WOMEN’S CENTRE is dedicated to supporting women, bringing women together to engage and network, and providing opportunities for women’s personal development and empowerment.
Women may be in crisis for many reasons and the stress and trauma of life events can trigger a multitude of set backs. Sometimes, just having the space to talk things through can have a dramatic impact by clarifying the way forward. We have approximately 60 phone calls a week from women seeking guidance. We are also partnered with ‘Let’s Get Talking’ Counselling Services who offer a no set fee service.
We believe prevention is better than cure. We want to provide early intervention, support and advocacy. We also want women to support each other, enjoy social interaction through activities and events. Women need to be reminded how brilliant they are, how creative and resourceful they are. Women are eager to find joy in a massive range of activities; it is through being part of a network of supportive women than isolation can be avoided and self esteem re built. Our recent photo competition blew the judges away by the immense talent of the 130 women who entered. A gardening project with herbalist Christine Best and florist Maura Sheehy of Maura’s Flowers was booked out within days. A Motivation course was so popular we had to run it twice to meet the demand. We know women are eager to participate in events and seek support.
