We’ve adapted our services and are taking referrals and self-referrals for our specialist one-to-one counselling in certain London boroughs and for our support groups in East London.

All our services are being offered remotely and you need to have a safe and confidential space to be able to access them.

Counselling is available in weekly sessions, with the same counsellor, for up to 18 hourly sessions. We are currently offering all counselling sessions by telephone.

Support groups are being run via zoom.

Emergency funding appeal

Domestic abuse has increased during the coronavirus pandemic, which means more demand than ever for our specialist mental health services.

We were working at full capacity before the lockdown and anticipate a 30% increase in women accessing our services once the restrictions ease.

However, we are facing a funding shortfall. We need your help to ensure that women can get the free, and often life-saving support they need.

We empower women to rebuild their lives after domestic abuse

1 in 4 UK women will experience some form of domestic abuse and it’s the leading cause of depression among UK women. Yet we are one of the few organisations addressing the link between domestic abuse and women’s mental health.

Since 1996, we have supported thousands of women from across London, through our free counselling; group therapy; and self-development workshops.

It’s vital that women who have been abused have access to mental health support for their emotional wellbeing. We provide our services for free – and last year alone we helped over a thousand women.
