You’re not alone

Sexual abuse and rape can leave people with physical and mental scars that take time and understanding to work through. Family Matters Counselling Service has been created to provide skilled help for children and adults who are experiencing these difficulties. A talk with one of our specialist qualified counsellors, who is experienced in sexual abuse awareness, can make all the difference.

Our counselling practice is supported by qualified professionals -who are trained across a wide range of issues and disciplines to help those affected address their fears and identify a clear pathway towards resolution and healing.

Throughout, our aim is:

  • To provide a safe and confidential environment in which to explore the thoughts, feelings and behaviour affecting your life.
  • To listen, offer support and help as you find a way through some of the difficulties you are experiencing and how they impact on your wellbeing.
  • To help reduce the mental and physical distress you may be experiencing.
  • To assist those faced with inflicting self-harm or suicidal thoughts.
  • To guide you through a period of change, during which we will help you grow and replace old behaviour with new ways of thinking and self-discovery.
