Trust House Lincolnshire provides free counselling services for adults and children who have been sexually abused or have experienced sexual violence, either recently or in the past. We support men, women and children and offer a safe place where survivors can be supported to improve their health and well being, regain their confidence and self-esteem and be empowered to reclaim their lives.
We know that rape and sexual violence doesn’t just have an impact on the survivor; that the families, friends and supporters of survivors may need support themselves. Because we understand this we can provide counselling to everyone who has been affected, whether that is through individual sessions or family sessions.
Our services are based on your needs, we know that there is no ‘typical’ survivor so our counsellors are led by you and what your individual needs are.
As well as more general talking therapy, some of our counsellors are able to provide art and play therapy. All family counselling will include play therapy.
When you contact us to access our counselling service one of our Clinical Leads will ask you to come for an assessment meeting. We try and book this appointment within 2 weeks of receiving your referral form. The assessment meeting is to establish if we are the right service for you, and for you to have a chance to meet us before you commit to the counselling process. The assessment is not a counselling session but is chance to gather some general information and talk about what you want to achieve from counselling. You are welcome to bring someone with you for this meeting; this can be a friend, family member or a member of your support team.
You can call our Helpline on 01476 570284 and we can help you discuss your options, any fears you have about attending counselling and what you can expect from counselling. You can also email us on [email protected]
