About Stepping Stones...

Jobs @ Stepping Stones >>

Stepping Stones offers individual counselling and group work to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

We are an independent and confidential service with around 20 counsellors, all of whom are professionally qualified.

Stepping Stones was established in 1984 and became a registered charity in 1995, the aim being to achieve the following objectives;

  • To protect and preserve the good health, both mental and physical, of persons who have been victims of sexual abuse and in particular by the provision of therapeutic intervention and individual and group counselling.
  • To advance the education of persons working with those who have been victims of child sexual abuse.

Some information about the process

Once we have received your referral, we will contact you to gather some information about your needs and when you are available.

We will arrange for you to meet with one of our counsellors, where an assessment will be undertaken to discuss the range of services we provide and which of those will be best suited for you.

Following the assessment you will be placed on a waiting list until a place becomes available on the service agreed.

Some clients choose individual counseling which is usually one hour a week for the first six weeks.

At the end of the first 6 weeks further options will be discussed.

About Group Work

Stepping Stones believes Group Therapy is very successful in dealing with issues. This is from research and 30 years experience.

The groups are closed single gender groups. Once they have started, each group keeps the same members until all the sessions are completed.
Each group has between four and eight participants with two group leaders.
Each group runs as 3 blocks of 10 sessions.
Each group meets weekly for two hours.
There is always a group of people coming for the first time.
All those that attend groups are seen individually by one of the group leaders at least once before they attend.
Each group session is planned and led by the group leaders.

Individual cases are reviewed at the end of each module.

Group work is an option, not a requirement, you will be asked whether you would like to partake in group work, and you can decide
for yourself.
