Our Guide - Getting Support

There are a number of different ways you can get support with your recovery. Below are some suggestions of ways you could find suppport. However we are unable to take responsibility for any of the services you may find.

Stepping Stones:

If you are an adult survivor of child sexual abuse in North or North East Wales you can contact the office and refer your self to the service. Your call will be recieved by a memebr of staff who will respect the confidential nature of your call and will place you on a waiting list until a counsellor becomes available. This will be approximately in a month of your enquiry/referral.

Private Counselling:

A useful way of finding a counsellor in your area is to use the Britiah Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists website where you can search for one in your area - www.bacp.co.uk.   The website can also offer you more information and advice on choosing a counsellor, what to expect and what to look for. It is important when looking for a counsellor to be aware that different counsellors practise different types of counselling and have different qualifications. You may wish to shop around and make sure you get the right person for you.

G.P Surgeries:

You will find that many G.P surgeries now have a counsellor working for them and can offer you some free counselling. It may be worth asking your doctor.

Mental Health Teams:

All areas have a mental health team who provided a service to those with mental health issues. Your doctor should be able to put you in touch with your local team or contact your local Social Services department.

Other voluntary organisations:

There are other voluntary organisations across the country that offer counselling and advice for those who have survived child sexual abuse. Although we are not in a position to recommend any of them you may find out about them through your local telephone directory, social services or your G.P.
