Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence is one of Australia’s greatest shames. It is everywhere. To quote the words of Rosie Batty… "Family Violence happens to anybody, no matter how nice your house is, no matter how intelligent you are”.

At She Counselling we are deeply passionate about this issue. We are determined to make women feel;

  • Heard
  • Validated
  • Believed
  • Supported
  • Reassured

Whether it is you, or someone you love, we are here for you. We have first-hand understanding of the impact of domestic violence. We understand the fear, the feelings of being trapped, the confusion, the isolation and the emotional distress it causes.

We understand that everyone experiences domestic violence differently and that no one knows your situation better than you.

In cases of domestic violence, a support person (family member/friend etc) is welcome to sit in on sessions with you, if it would help. If you have any questions about how therapy at She can help you, please get in touch
