Our counseling service is offered to those who have experienced any type of sexual violence.
We can offer short-term or long-term counselling, for survivors aged 13 and over in the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire area, who have experienced any type of sexual violence. The short term counselling consists of counselling and crisis intervention.
We offer up to 24 sessions of long-term counselling (or up to a maximum of 48 sessions in certain circumstances).
Counselling offers a safe and non-judgmental environment in which you can begin to express and explore your thoughts and feelings in a way that may not be possible with family or friends.
Whatever your reasons for coming for your first visit, we are here to support you.
The short term counselling consists of counselling and crisis intervention.
These sessions can assist in helping to alleviate some of the initial distress and by assisting you to identify what your needs are, address any risk factors and to identify and establish coping strategies, as well as signposting to other services for additional support.
We recognise that everyone is different and will experience their feelings in different ways.
The Counsellors will not give advice or direction; nor will they make decisions for you. They can support you in developing your own insights and solutions to difficulties.
Counselling can enable you to feel less isolated, to gain understanding and find inner strengths which can assist in re-gaining control of your life.
