About us

Mothers Against Violence (MAV) have supported communities in Greater Manchester since 1999. The group was set up by mothers who were committed to changing their community after a string of gun and gang related murders in inner city Manchester. From the outset the group worked at making a positive difference in the community. As a result one of the services created was Active Community Counselling & Emotional Support Service (ACCESS). It is a counselling service lead by a counsellor who has personal experience of murder and violent crime. The project seeks to reach those people who have experienced trauma and loss. MAV know that many people need someone to hear their story, other need someone to sit, walk and talk with them. That is why MAV has created a comfortable friendly environment at the charities local space to provide counselling support. MAV's counselling service has been supported each year since 2010 with funding from many different sources. As a result we are pleased to offer some sessions free to those in need of support but without the financial ability to pay. So if there are limits to your budget please request a referral form with your initial contact. Funding is limited but we will always consider supporting people in the local area in need of support.

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.

Further information

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) will be provided as additional service from August 2020. EMDR therapy works by accessing specific parts of a memory (images, cognitions, emotions, and body sensations) and uses bilateral stimulation (e.g., eye movements, auditory, or tactile stimulation) to decrease any disturbances that are attached to the memory.

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.
