Some of The Services We Offer

Counselling Services

   We are currently offering Telephone Counselling to all our counselling clients due to Covid-19 restrictions.  Assessments are also continuing over the telephone to maintain the safety of both our counsellors and service users.  Please call us for more information or to book an assessment on 01942 681411
At sometime in most women’s lives situations arise which lead us to feel upset, distressed, confused, anxious or depressed.
These feelings may arise from a variety of reasons such as relationships, bereavement, illness, or it may be something that happened a while ago.

Freedom Programme (Domestic Abuse)

Our FREEDOM PROGRAMME is running again, although virtually due to the current COVID restrictions, we are still working with our women and putting measures in place to ensure their safety and wellbeing.  Please contact us on 07484 546733 or e mail Nicola Richardson on nicola.wellwomen@btconnect.com for more information and to be added to our programme waiting list.  The FREEDOM PROGRAMME is aimed around women who have suffered or still suffering from an abusive relationship and aims to examine the roles played by attitudes and beliefs on the actions of abusive men and the responses of victims and survivors.

Abuse comes in many forms and many relationships and our programme aim is to help the women to make sense of and understand what has happened to them, instead of the whole experience just feeling like a horrible mess. We aim to support and empower our women to make better life choices whilst keeping safe.  The aim of the group is to ensure all women feel secure and can engage safely in open discuss where they feel able, whilst hearing from other women in similar situations.

The programme runs for 12 weeks (may not run during during school holidays).
