The Into The Light Ten Week Course For Survivors

We offer a ten week counselling and educational course which is topic based and information giving but with plenty of time for sharing experiences and feelings. During the course we focus on different aspects of the impact of sexual abuse on us as adults. We look at how it affects our self image, our relationships, ways out of negative cycles of behaviour and ideas for moving forward to gain better relationships and new hope for the future. The course is facilitated by a Professional Counsellor and is underpinned with a therapeutic approach.

You can access this course in three ways:

Groups:
Group sessions are held weekly for one and a half hours. Each group has 6-8 members.

This course is available for women in London in Ealing and Fulham.

One To One:
We also provide the course on a one to one basis for women and men. Counsellors are available in London in Fulham, Streatham and Surrey.
