Counselling & Therapy
Safeline has a large team of counsellors and therapists, who work with adults and children aged 11 and upwards. Our Dramatherapist can work with children from the age of 5. We are able to offer counselling sessions for free and do not put a limit on the number of sessions that you have. If you have questions about our counselling service then please contact us.
Counselling and how can it help you
If you have experienced rape or childhood sexual abuse or if this has happened to someone close to you, it may feel very difficult to talk to the people you see everyday about it. This may be because your reactions are overwhelming or confusing, or because you want to protect others. Coming to counselling gives you a private and confidential space where you can talk to someone you can trust about your reactions, your thoughts, your feelings and your experiences.
Our research shows that after counselling, Safeline clients report an improvement in their health and well-being, feel more in control of their lives and more able to play an active role in the world. Clients say that they feel hope for the future, discover an ability to move on from what happened or are able to become the person that they always wanted to be.
