We provide emotional support through domestic abuse counselling so you can process and make sense of the abuse you endured and the impact its had and is having on you.

Process and heal

As part of our journey of support, we offer our counselling service to women to have a safe space in which to receive guidance to process and heal from the abuse and violence they’ve experienced.

The sessions allow women to experience what it feels like to speak their truth without it being used as a weapon against them. It’s vital for women to experience what a safe relationship can feel like with their counsellor and then once they experience what this type of relationship can feel like, they can then look at mirroring that relationship outside the therapy room with other people.

SATEDA offers counselling to women in Swale and Medway who have experienced domestic abuse and want support from a counsellor to process their experience.

You can also access counselling if you’re still in an abusive relationship, but we recommend you complete the Freedom Programme first, which then ties into counselling.

Our counselling services take place all year-round, Monday – Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm. We provide 12 sessions with an option to extend this by up to another 6.

The sessions are usually weekly and agreed between you and your counsellor.

We’re pleased to deliver this service in partnership with Edify.

You’ll speak either face to face or online to a qualified or student counsellor to discuss your feelings, problems and associated issues in a confidential and safe space.

The goal of counselling is to help you understand yourself better and come to terms with what has happened to you, gaining greater self-esteem and self-confidence in the process.

Yes, all the services we provide to women and children are free thanks to grants and fundraisers.

This counselling service has been funded by the Brook Trust.
