Abuse victims share stories.

VICTIMS who have overcome abuse are being asked to share their stories.

People will put their experiences into words for a new anthology called I'm Not An Egg and I Won't Be Beaten.

Organised by a Newcastle-based counselling group, the project aims to bring together 100 tales and poems from across the region.

The project is the brainchild of newlyestablished ASCA Counselling, in Heaton, which has evolved from a well-established charity counselling adults who have experienced childhood abuse.

Now, ASCA has broadened to include relationship counselling, bereavement counselling, psychosexual therapy and holistic treatments, such as massage and aromatherapy.

Counsellors at the group say many people find telling their stories and seeing them in print is an excellent healing and empowering process.
