Situation

Domestic violence can have an enormous effect on a child's mental health. Evidence shows children living in families where there's violence between parents can lead to serious long term emotional effects. Even if they are not physically harmed, children can suffer lasting emotional and psychological damage, as a result of witnessing violence. They may be encouraged to take part in bullying or threatening a parent, or be threatened by one parent as a way of controlling the other.

Our highly trained professional counsellors help survivors to overcome the trauma of domestic abuse they have experienced or witnessed. This includes sexual, physical and emotional abuse. We provide Trauma Informed Counselling for up to 2 years, to ensure recovery for clients remains long lasting without the need for mental health services in the future. Our trained team are male & LGBTQ+ sensitive and considerate to an individual's personal circumstances

  • I’ve had counselling before but nothing like this. I am finally feeling better

  • He was so down, anxious and stressed and wasn’t how a 5-year-old should be. School neglected his needs, struggled to handle him and I didn’t understand why he was acting out or how to best help him. Without the counselling I don’t think I would have got through this past year and a half.
