Here at Jasmine House, we understand that speaking out and accessing help following sexual violence of any kind isn’t easy. We will work with you every step of the way to help you cope, recover and thrive.
Jasmine House provides a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to all female survivors aged 18+ who have been subjected to any form of rape or sexual violence at any time in their lives.This service provides an opportunity for survivors to explore and work through their experiences of sexual violence. Survivors who have had counselling have spoken of the importance of being believed, heard, accepted and understood by the counsellor.Our counsellors will never pressure you into talking about anything you do not wish to. The focus of the sessions is on what you choose to bring.The effects of the abuse may not always be obvious for some time after the incident.Counselling cannot make the abuse go away, but it will enable you to work through your thoughts and feelings so that you can acknowledge what happened and live with it as a part of your life, without being overwhelmed or controlled by it.
You can access our counselling service in the following ways:
- Face to face
- Video (e.g. Zoom)
