Psychotherapy and Counselling for Victims of Abuse

This page lists counsellors and psychotherapists who offer therapy to help victims of abuse. If you are searching for help with drug, alcohol or other substance abuse, you may wish to check our listing of addiction counsellors. Please visit the individual websites listed for further details about specialist areas covered.

The therapists listed have all identified abuse counselling as a key area of focus for them however their individual areas of expertise and depth of experience will vary. You may wish to check that the therapist has undertaken specialist training in sexual abuse counselling or domestic violence, as there is no definitive accreditation for this area of counselling. You can expect that the therapist is registered with a professional counselling or psychotherapy association. Therapists registered with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) or UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) will be bound by the Code of Ethics and Practice demanded by these professional bodies. There is no dedicated association for counsellors specialising in this area, although you may wish to look for therapists who have worked with support groups in the past or alongside their private practice.

In addition to private practice counselling and therapy there are a great many support groups available to help which will offer free and confidential support, such as Refuge, Women's Aid and the NSPCC. These charities all offer freephone support lines and if you are concerned about leaving evidence of your searches on your computer, they maintain pages explaining how to anonymise your website viewing. See for example Refuge's How to stay safe online page. The NHS also maintains very good resources on its website providing further information for how to get help, such as their page on domestic violence.

We have more counsellors listed here who can help vistims of abuse, but if you aren't sure where to start and want to talk to someone straight away about what your experiencing, you can call Samaritans 24 hours a day on Freephone 116 123.
