Welcome to Stepping Stones North Wales

Living Well is Our Triumph

Stepping Stones is a registered charity providing therapeutic services across North Wales to adults who have been sexually abused as children.

You are welcome to browse our website, where we have some information for those who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

Taking the first step of telling someone can be really difficult.

“Talk to us we listen”

At Stepping Stones we offer counselling and support across North Wales, our service is non-discriminatory regarding gender, race or ethnicity, we embrace and respect diversity and our service is free to all at point of need.
We provide a safe environment so that you can access the support you need. Our services are confidential (with the exception where the protection and safeguarding of children and vulnerable people is compromised).
