Counselling can help you explore the difficulties you may be experiencing in a non-judgemental, understanding environment. A counsellor is there to help you to discover your own inner resources and allow you to look at things in a different way at your own pace.

Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA)

An Independent Sexual Violence Advisor offers confidential advice and support to both females and males who have been the victims of sexual violence. They will help you come to terms with what has happened and explain the options available to you. One of the options include advice around reporting to the police, that’s only if you want to. We can also help you decide what other support you might need.

In our Self Help Guides we have included some sections about some feelings, thoughts and behaviours that survivors of abuse experience on a regular basis, which we hope you will find helpful.
