Clients can choose whether they would like to join a group or receive individual counselling. Currently we have 2 groups running; one for women affected by domestic violence and a second more general group. These are ongoing groups for up to a year. Clients are asked to commit to coming regularly.
Counselling for Black women
While all our counsellors are sensitive to issues facing women from Black and ethnic minority communities, we offer Black and African-Caribbean clients the choice of seeing someone from their own culture if they feel it would be more helpful in exploring issues of identity, racism and exclusion.
Counselling for Irish women
We acknowledge that many Irish clients continue to experience racism and exclusion from many support services. We provide a service where issues of individual and group identity can be explored and are recognised as important factors impacting the development of positive mental health.
Women Affected by Domestic Violence, Counselling in Farsi, French, Portuguese, Sylheti, Bangladeshi, Spanish, Turkish and English
We work with women for whom violence has been or is a significant part of their lives, providing individual or group therapy. We also work with front-line providers of services targeting women affected by domestic violence, providing training and/or supervision.
The Older Women’s Project
We aim to improve the mental health of women over 50 in the community who are living in conditions of deprivation and who may not see themselves as candidates for psychological help. By offering either individual counselling or group work, which strengthens inner resources and breaks down isolation, we can help clients live more resourcefully. If you have any enquiries about this service, or would like to refer someone, please contact our switch board on 020 7281 8970 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Migrant and Refugee Project, Counselling in Farsi, French, Portuguese, Sylheti, Bangladeshi, Spanish, Turkish and English
We are now offering women refugees who fit our criteria the possibility of receiving their counselling in several different languages.
