Family Matters


The Family Matters counselling practice is supported by qualified professionals – specialists in the areas of childhood sexual abuse and rape. They are trained across a wide range of issues and disciplines to help those affected address their fears and identify a clear path towards resolution and healing. Our expertise is wide-ranging and covers physical abuse, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, child protection, trauma, bereavement, self-esteem issues, and anger management. We also address how being vulnerable impacts on work-related problems, sexuality issues and – where appropriate – related drug and alcohol problems.
Family Matters works to help relieve the mental and physical distress of children, adolescents and adults who have been victims of abuse, including sexual abuse and rape, together with their non-abusing family members and partners, and thus help to:

  • Break the cycle of abuse.
  • Reduce the incidence of suicide and self-harm amongst survivors.
  • Reduce the pain, suffering and distress of survivors of childhood sexual abuse and improve their ability to relate to others.
  • Promote empowerment, self-awareness and self-esteem, thereby reducing the levels of social exclusion and increasing access to health opportunities.
  • Reduce the amount of disruption to schooling.
  • Provide other agencies with a suitable referring agency for those identified with problems in this specialist area.
  • Raise the awareness of childhood sexual abuse through the provision of courses aimed at counsellors and professionals.
