Womans Trust

Helping women affected by domestic violence

Woman’s Trust is a support and mental health service for women affected by domestic violence.

The consequences of domestic violence are many; they include depression, low self- esteem and a sense of powerlessness. We are here to listen, help and support you.

We can provide you with one-to-one counselling, support groups and workshops to help you start to rebuild your confidence in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

Our counsellors – all women - are professionally trained in giving women the specialist support you need to cope if you are feeling depressed, bad about yourself, confused and unsure about how to deal with the things happening in your life.

Woman’s Trust counselling gives you the time and space to talk, in confidence, about how you’re feeling with another woman who knows about the impact of domestic violence.
