Safeline has a large team of counsellors and therapists dedicated to helping people who have experienced sexual abuse at any time in their lives. We work with adults and children aged five and upwards and offer our counselling services free of charge to anyone who may have been affected. This includes friends and family members.
If you had any questions about accessing our services then please don’t hesitate to call our general office number on, 01926 402 498 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
How counselling can help you
If you or someone close to you has experienced rape or sexual abuse, it might feel very difficult to talk about it to your friends and family. This may be because your reactions are overwhelming or confusing, or you could feel like you want to protect others. Coming to counselling gives you a private and confidential space where you can talk to someone you trust about your reactions, thoughts, feelings and experiences.
After counselling, many clients report an improvement in their health and well-being. This includes an increased feeling of control over their lives, hope for the future and an ability to move on from their experiences and become the person that they would like to be.
