SEXUAL ABUSE COUNSELLING with the ROWAN PROJECT
Who are we?
Alongside our work with Domestic Abuse we are now offering specialist counselling support for adults and young people (boys and girls) aged 16 years and over who have been victims of sexual abuse/violence/rape and/or current/historic child sexual abuse living in Breckland, Norfolk.
Please feel free to download the Rowan Project leaflet.
We are currently accepting self-referrals from those who live in Breckland, Norfolk, and referrals from professionals.
Our services are free to clients and we offer up to 18 sessions of therapy with a fully qualified, registered therapist. Due to the pandemic we have adapted our services to offer either telephone or Zoom sessions.
We offer day (Monday to Friday) and one late evening appointment and offer a non-judgemental service.
We work to the BACP Ethical Framework (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
All referrals undergo a robust assessment so we can work with you to provide counselling that’s right for you and includes you at every point.
The Rowan Project offers specialist free counselling for men and women over 16 years of age. We work with those who have experienced sexual abuse. This can be current, recent, or historical.
What is Sexual Abuse?
Sexual abuse is any type of sexual behaviour or sexual act, which is unwanted or forced upon an adult or child without their consent.
The Effects of Sexual Abuse
Sexual abuse/violence can have many psychological, emotional, and physical effects on a survivor. It can impact the mind, body, thoughts, feelings and behaviours of the person. Examples include:
Feelings including but not limited to, fear, guilt, shame, anger, numbness, and denial.
We are here to help and support you. Just telling your story may be a brave and difficult process however it can also be incredibly healing.
Please feel free to contact us by email or phone.
