How we help Ways we help Counselling Counselling The consequences of experiencing domestic violence and abuse are many – depression, anxiety, feeling powerless, loss of self-esteem are just a few. We are here to listen, help and support you. SAFE’s counselling provides a confidential, safe and regular space for you to talk about any difficulties and explore your thoughts and feelings. We offer subsidised counselling which is based on ability to pay. The sessions will last for an hour and should ideally take place weekly. Our team of counsellors, who are either trainees or professional counsellors, have also been specifically trained to understand the causes and effects of domestic abuse. All our counsellors are members of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and follow their counselling ethical guidelines. SAFE is also an organisational member of The National Counselling Society and we work to their ethical guidelines.
