This is all new and it’s okay to feel a little lost. It’s okay to feel unsure. There is no right way to deal with it and your best is more than enough. You are no less independent or capable for needing support or help.
This is difficult and you are doing so well. This is something you can get through and you do not have to get through it alone.
If you have any questions, queries or worries, if you would like to find out more information about our private sexual violence & abuse support services or if you'd like to book your first counselling session, get in touch.

RE: Nurturing Workshop for Parents of Survivors (delivered at Parents Against Sexual Exploitation):
“Nurturing session was fantastic.”
“It was very helpful to have workshops in the afternoon which allowed us to focus on ourselves.”
“The nurturing workshop acknowledged the challenges to ‘looking after oneself’ when confronted with the abuse of a child, but also the importance of doing so in order to create the resilience needed to cope with ongoing trauma. There was much laughter within our group.”
RE: GINA Running Group Grant Application:
“This was a strong, well-structured application aimed at developing an innovative intervention for a sadly widespread problem that people still find it difficult to talk about. Cutting edge stuff with potentially wide benefits for those involved and an academic edge. We’d have been mad not to” - Mike Mounfield, Director of The Wisdom Factory CIC
we'd love to hear your views
"Heather is the best counsellor I've ever had in my ten years of being engaged with mental health services. She is compassionate, kind and patient when you find yourself unable to talk about things. She never victim-blamed. I am leaving our sessions more positive and relaxed than I have ever been" - A GINA client
