Email Therapy offers a great deal of flexibility and can be especially useful for people with busy lives or those who may feel that therapy in person or over the telephone is just too overwhelming for you right now.

Our email therapy service ensures that you are well supported by our qualified therapists. It gives you the choice of when and how, you express what you are thinking and feeling.

Consider making a voluntary donation towards the costs of your counselling and help us keep waiting times to a minimum for other survivors like you. There is no obligation to pay, so you are still welcome to access the service if you know you will be unable to donate.

If you can’t afford to make a monetary donation but would like to contribute to our cause, please see our ‘Fundraising’ section.
