Adult Therapeutic Support

We are here to support you. We understand what you may be experiencing and we can help.

Freeva’s counselling team provide an environment of trust and confidence to help you focus on any feelings you may be experiencing.

We understand domestic abuse can have an enormous effect on mental health. The reactions and emotions following abuse can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. Our counsellors can provide support for you during and after these difficult times. We’re here for you, with a safe place to explore and work through any experiences of abuse.

Our counselling sessions consist of 6-12 weeks of support, in which we provide an action plan, a positive environment for healing and recovery, and any necessary onward referrals. You’ll complete our counselling sessions with the skills to feel empowered to make independent life choices and any further information you may need going forward.

Reporting to the police

You do not have to report to the police to get support from us.

If you don’t want to report, we are here to support you with any emotional needs, guidance, safety planning and help you access any more relevant information.

If you are considering reporting to the police, we can help you understand how the criminal justice process works. We can talk you through what will happen if you do report to the police, what will happen if you report anonymously or the importance and process of forensic DNA retrieval.

*There are times that on our Helpline and in all our Domestic Abuse services, we will report to the police, with or without consent, if the risk to a client, child or third party, is significantly high.
