‘Counselling’ is a term that can be very off-putting, and can turn the trauma victim inwards, making them shun any assistance simply because of the manner in which the process is often handled. What we offer is a place of escape and safety – solitude if desired, or support and companionship if preferred. We offer support and guidance that comes from direct experience of having personally endured trauma, so we don’t offer ‘text book’ solutions – instead we offer you a place where you can come to feel safe and supported whilst you mend your emotional wounds.
In addition, we encourage you to meet and mingle with others who have had experiences similar to your own, so that you are more readily able to feel comfortable talking about what you endured. Whether you are a child or an adult, we offer the same warm care.
Come for a day, a week, or longer. We appreciate that a ‘regular weekly session’ is not really going to do much mending, so we encourage you to use our facilities as a safe haven where you can feel understood, and a place where you are able to call in to when you feel the need.
