Face to Face Support:
Our ‘Healing Steps’ service enables individuals to meet on a one-to-one basis with one of our team and work through some issues, learn some skills and set some goals to better living.
The Safe Room
The Safe Room is peer support group, with a therapeutic facilitated base, for adult male survivors of sexual abuse and rape that enables members to work together, grow together and heal together.
‘Breaking the Silence’ Counselling/Psychotherapy Service
Our ‘Breaking the Silence’ therapy service provides individuals with qualified therapists, delivering evidence based therapy that aims to help create significant change and improve the mental health of clients.
As part of our overall counselling and psychotherapy offer, we can provide EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) as either part of the therapy or as a separate treatment for those with PTSD.
In order for us to offer the widest possible array of support options, we have listened to you and are delighted to be able to offer a small art therapy service.
Therapy doesn’t just happen in a 1:1 setting, here at Survivors Manchester it also happens in groups. Throughout the year, we offer a limited number of group therapy starting times.
