waterford rape and sexual abuse centre



How We Work

When you first contact the Centre an appointment is made for an initial assessment session.  This is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have about the Centre, the counsellors or counselling itself.  You can then decide if you wish to go any further.

Our approach to counselling is based on an equal and respectful relationship between survivor and counsellor. It is non-medical and is based on the empowerment of the victim/survivor.  While all our counsellors are professionally qualified with additional training in rape and sexual abuse, we see survivors as being the experts in their own recovery.

Unfortunately, there may be a waiting period before a counsellor can offer ongoing appointments.  However, support is available during this time by means of the telephone or written correspondence.  Counselling appointments generally last for one hour until you decide that your work with us is completed.
