Counselling is one of the specialist services we provide to those who have been impacted by sexual abuse.

We understand that experiencing sexual abuse in childhood can continue to disrupt an adult’s quality of life in fundamental ways, affecting both your mental and physical health. By beginning to talk about your experiences and the impact they have had on you, we can help you find pathways to a happier and healthier future.

Counselling with One in Four is a process, and we invite those who have been sexually abused as children to trust us with their suffering and engage in this process with us.

Individual counselling

We start with one-to-one counselling with one of our highly trained professional therapists. This is a gentle introduction to our work together, and we can offer you up to 20 sessions. This is the beginning of overcoming the trauma of childhood sexual abuse. The plan now is to help you move from surviving to living.

Group counselling

The stage after one-to-one counselling is group work. Here you will be supported by a group of your peers; a safe space to develop the life skills to cope with the trauma you have suffered in the past.

Family support 

We understand that the impact of sexual violence goes beyond the person who has experienced the abuse. We can offer family members the tools and support to help them help the survivor in your family. This is carried out in group sessions with other families.
