We are the only not-for-profit organisation in North Devon that specialises in sexual violence, trauma and abuse. We offer free specialist therapeutic support, delivered by qualified and experienced counsellors with a depth of support that is rarely available from other organisations. We support women and men who identify as survivors or victims of sexual violence, including rape and historic child sexual abuse. We are also able to support non-offending family members, as we feel this holistic approach is vital in the support of our clients.
We offer 15 one-hour sessions of free face to face, online or telephone counselling, from our premises at The Lodge in Rock Park, Barnstaple, with one of our six counsellors. Our counsellors use various approaches including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement, Desensitisation & Reprocessing), and Single Session Therapy. We also offer family counselling and support for other non-abusing family members.
It’s not really that long ago that psychotherapy and counselling were viewed as something that should be kept a secret. But times have, thankfully, changed. More and more of us are benefiting from this useful tool for mental and emotional wellbeing
Specialist counselling service for adults who have suffered from sexual abuse including rape and their non-offending family members.
