AMOS - MALE SERVICE
We provide support services to male victims of abuse.
Counselling and 1-to-1 support
With the waiting list for NHS counselling growing there is an increased need for people to receive and access these services. Individual, confidential support for men 16 and over who have been abused. Clients can self-refer or can be referred by other agencies.
Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues.
At your appointment, you'll be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained therapist, who'll listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems.
Support can take place:
· Face to Face
· Over the phone
· By email
You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months, or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.
It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress, but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your therapist.
This is a chance to disclose any abuse historical or present and to look at positive coping mechanisms and how the effects of abuse may have had life altering changes.
For an appointment or just to discuss any fears you may have please complete our referral form or contact us on 01869 232461 form.
Please note: All information is treated confidentially and there is never any pressure to disclose anything that you are not comfortable with.
