About us

GINA is a social enterprise offering private, specialist counselling for individuals subjected to sexual violence and abuse. We offer 'face to face' counselling from our Birmingham City Centre premises or telephone counselling from the comfort of your own home (nationwide). There is NO WAITING LIST; we provide support when you need it.

We take a Trauma Informed Approach, which acknowledges that trauma can be carried around within ourselves. This approach recognises experience, understands responses to experiences that are overwhelming as normal, rational and often really sensible, explores stories, rejects labels, seeks to redress power imbalance and builds upon foundations of empowerment and connection.

GINA is the sister organisation of the Rape & Sexual Violence Project (RSVP); a charity providing compassionate, free support services for individuals subjected to sexual violence and abuse in Birmingham and Solihull. All of GINA's profits are donated to RSVP, to help provide free support services for those who need them.

Training, qualifications & experience

Our GINA counsellors are specialists in the field of sexual violence and abuse.

Member organisations *

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
