BTR.ORG Group Sessions Are For YOU!

Have you been ignored, dismissed, minimized, vilified, and torn down by those who should have helped you? BTR.ORG Group Sessions are for YOU!

Google Podcasts

Have you been betrayed, emotionally abused, and abandoned? Disbelieved, dismissed, and even shunned? 

BTR.ORG is here for you. 

Our Group Sessions Help You Identify Abusive Relationships

Identifying abuse can be difficult. Clergy, therapists, even the legal system, dismiss abuse victims if there aren’t signs of physical battering.

How can women accurately identify abuse if they bear no bruises?

A safe space to share their experiences, emotions, and concerns is a necessary component in identify abuse and finding validation. 

BTR.ORG Group Sessions Help You Identify The Elements of Abuse

Women are empowered when they become educated about emotional abuse. BTR.ORG coaches are trained to help you identify the elements of abuse so that you can make empowered, knowledgeable decisions for your own safety. 

When victims understand and accept that they are in an abusive relationship, they can hold tightly to the truth.

BTR.ORG Group Sessions Empower Women To Live In Truth

Abusers condition victims to live in fear and lies. Embracing and living in truth helps victims find safety.

BTR.ORG Group Sessions are a safe space for women to express difficult emotions without fear of judgment. 

BTR.ORG Encourages Victims to Prioritize Safety

Your safety is more important than anything. Prioritize your safety above all. Safety isn’t just not being physically harmed. Safety is emotional, mental, spiritual, and sexual comfort. You deserve safety.

You can prioritize your safety by setting boundaries. Some examples:

  • I only speak to and spend time with people who respect me.
  • I do not engage in sexual contact unless I feel completely safe.
  • I do not speak to abusive people.
  • I call the police when I am stalked, harassed, or terrorized.
  • I report crime, including marital rape.

BTR Is Here For You

As Anne says, “Hope and help are possible.” You can heal. You can experience safety and peace again. You deserve love.

You don’t have to do this alone.

The BTR Group Sessions occur every day in every time zone. Attending a group session can help you process your trauma, ask questions, share your story, and create strong bonds with other women who get it.

Remember, you’re not alone.

Anne (00:00):
Welcome to BTR.ORG. This is Anne. 

I honor all the women who listen to this podcast who are searching for answers, who are genuinely trying to save their families in the face of abuse and not knowing what to do and getting harmful information from therapists or internet articles or clergy resources that haven’t helped them understand the abuse. I wanna thank everyone for listening. I hope that BTR is helpful. The thought of any woman being in an abusive situation and not understanding what it is, is heartbreaking to me. Also, a thank you to all of you who have shared our material on social media or shared it with friends in an effort to educate more women about abuse. So with that, here are their shares. 

“I Have Felt the Expert Care & Clarity That I Have Been Searching For For 12 Years” 

Group Session Client (04:33):
I just wanted to say that I have been in therapy for 12 years and only now that I attend BTR.ORG Group Sessions have I felt that I have the expert care and clarity that I have been searching for for 12 years. You were what I call proactive, where before it was just wishy washy, hit or miss. If you wanna get psychobabble type of therapy, like how are you? What’s it? Go to therapy. But if you want the exact type of support women victims of emotional and psychological abuse need, attend BTR Group Sessions.

Group Session Client (05:23):
BTR.ORG Group Sessions are new to me. I have been going through, uh, not a good place for about three years and this is the first time that I have had other people share their stories where I felt so validated. I could totally relate. This isn’t just me. I’m not going crazy. I can stand my ground and create boundaries to keep myself safe, to keep my kids safe and have multiple daily options to check in, check out, share, not share. Listen, the isolation that I felt before is starting to dissipate.

“I Will Be Forever Grateful” 

Group Session Client (06:07):
I arrived at BTR in full-blown trauma, uh, never having known what he was doing for years and prior to we were married. And thank God that this is the place that I found because there was love and nurturing and education and somebody, all coaches, friends, to walk with me and support me and I will forever be grateful.

Group Session Client (06:37):
I had been in therapy for a while, years and at least a year with my abusive husband before I found BTR and there were no breakthroughs or anything. It was just the same cycle of, now that I know what it is, it was the same cycle of abuse happening over and over and over again with no real solution. When I found BTR I honestly was trying to find reasons in my head as to why attending BTR.ORG Group Sessions wouldn’t be good for me because <laugh> I, I knew it was gonna change everything about my life. And it did. I started attending BTR.ORG Group Sessions right before I officially separated from my emotionally abusive husband. So having BTR during that time of separation got me through and then helped me make the decision to separate permanently and just not wanna be with him anymore. And you know, I wouldn’t be here and be growing the way that I am without BTR.

“I Can Say That BTR Has Saved My Life” 

Group Session Client (07:56):
BTR has been very important for me through this journey. I can just very consistently say that it has saved my life. I would say just simply that without BTR I wouldn’t be here probably.

Group Session Client (08:13):
For years I would always search. Like we’d have fights and I would go to the internet to find out how I could be better so that we could stop having fights. And article after article only made things worse for me. It didn’t help at all. And finally one day I stumbled upon the BTR podcast, and since I prefer reading, I’m thankful for the transcript and I finally knew that what I was reading was right and when I had a name for what was going on in my marriage, I could finally start to work to fix it. And fixing it has meant not what I thought it would and it has saved my life too. So without BTR I wouldn’t have a name for what I experienced and I wouldn’t have a place to to live after the healing.

“The Connection That We Have & The Love That We Share Is Real” 

Group Session Client (09:09):
I didn’t ever think that I would be in the position that I’m in. I was with my ex-fiance from the age of 13 for 20 years and I had no idea that he was living a double life. I found BTR when I was staying in hotels. I had nowhere else to go and I booked a one-on-one with a coach and I haven’t looked back. I have learned so much and tomorrow is my one year anniversary of having left my ex-partner. And every single day that I attend a BTR.ORG Group Session, I see women that I am inspired by and women who are ahead of me in the journey and women who are following me on the journey. And we’re all on different journeys, but somehow the connection that we have and the love that we share is really real. So thank you so much. I dunno what I would’ve done without BTR for the last 12 months.

Group Session Client (11:14):
I found BTR to be really helpful. The Group Sessions are really helpful at connecting with other people going through this and not feeling alone and recognizing that there are lots of actually super capable, strong, determined people experiencing abuse at different stages along the way. And I found the BTR.ORG Group Sessions to be really helpful and the podcasts really nice just to like listen to and understand broader patterns and trends. And I wish people didn’t have to find this on their own and I’m really glad BTR exists.

“I Am Now Free And I’m Now Safe” 

Group Session Client (11:48):
Discovery was in 2011 of sex addiction. There’s just no support out there for women other than the free support groups that blame you for part of the problem. Even my therapist of many years never mentioned the word abuse. I felt like I was duped. As I got into BTR I learned so much. BTR is the only place that really helps victims of emotional and psychological abuse understand what is happening. I was terrified, thinking I could never do this. I could never ever, ever be free from a covert narcissist. And I have moved twice across state. The post separation abuse was just heinous. But with the help of BTR, I’ve been able to get to safety. And in this safe place, I’m now starting to process it even more. Cause I had been so busy going through all the, the process of divorce and everything else. The support I received from the BTR coaches, all the love they have allowed me to have such great strength and realizing I am worth it. I am enough. BTR is a lifesaver and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You helped save my life and I am now free and I’m now safe.

Group Session Client (13:30):
I feel like being in BTR Group Sessions has been an opportunity for me to create some routine in my life, like something I can do every single day. It has just created some routine and structure and support in the life that I currently have, which is very chaotic and unpredictable and challenging. And I genuinely feel like I like meeting with all the coaches cause they have different perspectives. Each coach like has a different vibe. That’s really helpful. That’s been great. I’ve only been doing this a couple months, but I’m really happy and I don’t think I’m gonna stop anytime soon. It seems like a really beautiful community of women who’ve been doing it for a long time. It’s really cool to see those connections and to be building them.

“BTR Has Changed My Life” 

Group Session Client (14:15):
I’ve been through this for over 30 years. I’ve dealing with this in my life and I’ve been in BTR for five months. My life has changed more in the last five months than all of those years that I went through. The clarity I get from the BTR Coaches, I really appreciate. Everyone has something different and all the shares help you understand other ways to do self-care and stay safe. And I really appreciate BTR, I can’t say enough about it. It’s changed my life.

Group Session Client (14:55):
BTR was literally an answer to prayer for me. After I found out about my husband’s affair and all his porn use, I really didn’t know what to think about my situation. After almost 30 years being with my husband, I felt like I was brainwashed. I didn’t know what to do and I prayed and I did a Google search and I found the podcast and it literally changed my life. After a year, I feel so much more empowered and connected and validated. I have so much clarity on the trauma that I had been going through and everything just started to make sense. I’m a completely different person than I was a year ago. I just love BTR.ORG Group Sessions.

Safety, Encouragement, and Support

Group Session Client (15:44):
BTR Group and Individual Sessions have all been an amazing space for me to be able to find safety, encouragement, and support. BTR has helped me and continues to help me as I’m still in this process to be reminded that I’m not crazy and that there is a cycle of abuse and I can watch for the signs and I can check in with myself and check in with my body. I’m grateful to have this community. It’s been really important to help me, um, be able to recover and I look forward to recovering more.

Group Session Client (16:24):
Well, I found BTR through the Instagram and just realizing that’s me. Those things are about me. When I decided to attend BTR.ORG Group Sessions, the BTR Coaches really helped me . It was like finally having the place where everything in my life that didn’t make sense made sense because there could be words put to it and I wasn’t alone. And to be able to literally like put the voices from the group sessions, in my ears and be able to hear that as things are happening in my life has just been life changing. It’s been a great support.
