Supporting Victims - Counselling for Victims of Crime

Are you or is someone you know a victim of crime and would like counselling? We work with Supporting Victims in North Yorkshire to provide counselling to victims of crime. The crime does not have to be reported and can be historic. Please see here for more information.

Pilot Scheme for Long Term/EMDR Counselling thanks to Postcode Community Trust

We are delighted to have been awarded a grant of £18,000 from Postcode Community Trust for a 12 month pilot of longer term/EMDR counselling in Ryedale. This will enable us to offer more appropriate treatment to patients with trauma symptoms on our existing waiting list. We hope to gain additional new funding to keep the scheme going after the initial pilot.

WHO WE ARE

We provide a range of counselling services to people living in Ryedale and Scarborough Borough Districts, North Yorkshire, including services accredited by our professional body, the BACP

We offer a number of different types of counselling and psychotherapy, including Person-Centred Counselling, Relational and Psychotherpeutic approaches, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Humanistic-Integrative (incorporating Solution-Focused, CBT, Transactional Analysis and creative techniques as appropriate) as well as Couples Counselling.  We also offer trauma recovery work, where appropriate, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). 

Most of our services are free to use thanks to the support of our funders and commissioners.  Our counsellors work within the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and are members of the BACP or the UKCP.  

  • Counselling is typically short-term i.e. an initial assessment appointment followed by six counselling sessions
  • Clients of our Victim Counselling Service, which is commissioned by the Police and Crime Commissioner North Yorkshire, receive 10 counselling sessions plus the initial assessment
  • We also offer a chargeable counselling service, 'Options' which offers clients greater choice, compared to our free-to-access services
  • Sessions are normally held at the same time each week and last between 50 and 60 minutes

We provide equality of services to everyone, regardless of disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation.
