Therapeutic Services

Specialist counselling and therapies for survivors of domestic abuse, to explore their issues and feelings in a safe, confidential environment.

If you have experienced abuse, counselling can help you overcome problems arising from these potentially devastating experiences.

Counselling offers the opportunity to move your life towards better and more effective ways of coping. It can be effective alongside other methods of support.

Understanding therapy

Our therapeutic services use a person-centred, trauma-informed and strengths-based approach to support individuals to make choices for themselves. It ensures an anti-discriminatory and anti-oppressive framework delivered within the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) guidelines.

The service supports women, men and children who have experienced domestic abuse.

The Therapeutic team provides one-to-one counselling sessions, offering a safe space either in person or online, to explore the impact of domestic abuse on their lives.

Experienced counsellors work with you to help you recover from the long-term impact of emotional and physical abuse.

Our support teams for children and young people from the age of 11 to 18 include trained art and drama therapists. These professionals use art, drama and play to help individuals explore their feelings about the domestic abuse they have experienced. The activities also help young people to understand that they are not to blame, and to rebuild vital relationships with their parent, carers, peers and siblings.
