Counseling & Support Groups
Doug Duncan, MS, LPC, is a professional counselor licensed in the state of Texas and practicing in the Dallas area. Doug specializes in helping people recover from religious or spiritual abuse, cult involvement, depression, phobias, trauma, relationship conflicts. As a recovering former member of an aberrational group, Doug is sensitive to the particular concerns of people struggling to overcome the legacy of cultic and spiritual abuse.
Doug Duncan, MS, LPC, along with his wife, Wendy, MA, LBSW, facilitates a peer support group for former members of cults and religiously or spiritually abusive groups. The support group offers a safe place for individuals who are attempting to recover from experiences with spiritually abusive cults, churches, and other organizations. The Duncans are former members of a pseudo-Christian cult who have used their experience to help others who are struggling to recover from the cults and abusive groups and other organizations.
What the Support Group is:
- Opportunity to share in a safe place
- Peer support in a nonjudgmental group
- Basic educational information
What Does It Cost?
Just your willingness to come. We do not charge for attendance at the support groups.
When Do the Support Groups Meet?
The Dallas area support group meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
In order to ensure a safe environment for all participants, an initial telephonic or face-to-face meeting with the facilitators is required prior to an invitation to attend the support group. The purpose is to:
- Explain the purpose and guidelines of the support group;
- Determine if the individual can benefit from this support group; and
- Screen out individuals who are posing as former cult members.
