Counselling Support

From 1st April 2016, victims of recent sexual violence can be referred for counselling support.

The purpose of the counselling service is to provide brief therapeutic intervention (six sessions), specifically for people who have been sexually assaulted within the last 12 months. It is provided at Hope House on the Gloucester Royal Hospital site and at Milsom Street Sexual Health Clinic in Cheltenham.  

The service is unable to offer counselling if the assault occurred over 12 months previously.
