Support and Counselling

Archway support workers provide support for anyone affected by rape or sexual assault that have come through the Archway service.

 It can be difficult to talk about what happened. You can take comfort in knowing that Archway specialist support workers are trained to meet the unique needs of survivors and are dedicated to offering judgment-free support. 

 We offer face to face support as well as telephone support for those struggling to leave their home. Our support is for emotional issues and practical support helping you to deal with and work through the trauma of what has happened to you . This does not involve going over the incident, but working through your worries and concerns and dealing with how you are feeling now. 

 If you have reported to the police an archway support worker will also support you through the process if your case goes to court.

 Talking to an experienced support worker to acknowledge your experience will help you to stop feeling so alone.This helps you to understand how the assault has affected you.
