Counselling


We provide a range of counselling services to meet the needs of female and male survivors, aged 13 and over.

How can this service help?

Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk to someone about your experiences and how they affect you. We aim to help you come to terms with what has happened to you.

How can I get support?

We provide three types of counselling services. Please click on the links below to read more and to find out how to access our services:

Further counselling after your RASASC sessions

It is the nature of our service that we are unable to offer further rounds of counselling after you have completed your agreed sessions. We can only take re-referrals from past clients who have unfortunately experienced another incident of sexual violence after leaving our service.

In this case, once you have re-referred to our counselling service, we will carry out a new assessment and either offer further support, or signpost to other specialist services.

For other past clients who may wish to continue with counselling, we do hold a list of private local counsellors with experience offering counselling around sexual violence. To request more information, please email: counselling@rasasc-guildford.org

Waiting times

Due to demand, there is an extended wait for our one-to-one counselling services. We can, however, offer support during this time through our online introductory group, our self-esteem and confidence programme and our helpline.

Professional standards

All our counsellors are fully qualified. We are an organisational member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and is bound by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling Psychotherapy and is subject to its Professional Conduct Procedure at all times.
