Advocacy Counselling Helpline

Weekly Counselling Sessions

20 sessions of Counselling for women who are survivors of rape or sexual violence.

Counselling Sessions

Twenty sessions of weekly counselling (over five-six months) offer a space to explore your feelings and thoughts about what happened to you over a longer period of time. The twenty sessions of counselling offers an opportunity for women who feel ready for in-depth exploration or for the processing experiences of sexual violence, as well as creating coping mechanisms to manage the impact of their experiences.

This program is suitable for women who:

  • are able to commit to weekly counselling sessions for a longer period of time
  • would like to have time to explore their feelings and thoughts
  • would like to explore what has happened in a safe and supportive environment without the pressure of time
  • would like to talk in more depth about what happened to them and feel ready to process the memories of the abuse
