Your trauma can never define you. Not you.
You are the magic that can’t be measured. You are the courage you show the world and the strength you channel when you’re feeling your weakest. You are the compassion and kindness that lives in your bones. You are the memories you make for you and others. You are your hopes, dreams and ambitions. You are the knowledge that your bad days do not define you.
There is no measure for such a magical thing as you.
You are the you that kept on surviving. You lived it all.
(face to face & telephone)
We provide private, paid for counselling services, with counsellors who are specialists in the field of sexual violence & abuse. You can access our counselling services at the time when you request support, to quickly meet your needs, offered in a way that suits you.
There is no waiting list. We provide services when you need them.
Our counselling sessions are priced at £40 per session (for an individual) & £50 per session (for an organisation).
We offer 'face to face' counselling in our Birmingham City Centre premises or telephone counselling from the comfort of your own home.
Counselling sessions will provide you with an opportunity to build a supportive and collaborative relationships with your counsellor; this space will provide you with the opportunity to explore the impacts of sexual violence & abuse, acknowledge your strengths that helped you survive and explore any changes you wish to make to create the life you desire.
We take a trauma informed approach, which acknowledges that trauma can be carried within ourselves. This approach recognises experience, understands responses to experiences that are overwhelming as normal, rational and often really sensible, explores stories, rejects labels, seeks to redress power imbalance and builds upon foundations of empowerment and connection. Instead of labelling you or the ways you have coped with sexual violence & abuse, GINA will focus on your strengths, how these helped you survive and explore how they can be built on.
