I feel like I have made a lot of progress. I think I can have the courage to prioritise my feelings over the expectations of others, and respect and look after myself. I feel so much better about everything.”

If you would like counselling

We are a dedicated team of women working hard to support anyone who has experienced rape or sexual abuse at any time.  From your initial contact with our service and throughout your journey with us, we will listen, believe and support you to recover and to move forward with your life.

If you would like to receive counselling from us, you can fill in the form below (purple Counselling Request Form button), or call the helpline (0808 802 0013) to arrange this.   After you have sent us the form or called our Helpline we will either post out a registration form for you to fill out and send back to us or we will send you an email with a link and password for you to access our on-line registration form for you to complete and submit.    As soon as we get a completed registration form back from you we will start arranging your counselling.  You will be asked to come in for a face to face pre-counselling visit with one of our Counsellors.  This meeting usually lasts for about one and a half hours.    We are able to offer women-only space within our Centre - you will be able to discuss this with us at your initial pre counselling visit.

I was listened to, taken seriously, allowed to see that what happened was not my fault, and I had nothing to be ashamed about.

How Counselling works

Counselling is a chance to be heard, and to talk about what has happened to you. Your counsellor will listen to you. You will be supported if you would like to make changes in your life. You will not be told what to do; your counsellor will help you to decide for yourself.

All our counsellors are professionally trained and members of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). You will see the same counsellor at the same time each week.  The time will be agreed with you before you start your sessions.
