We support adult victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence through person-centred counselling, trauma therapy and peer support groups. We also provide therapy for adults who have experienced traumatic incidents such as sudden bereavement, road traffic accidents or assault.
We have 30 years’ experience of supporting adult survivors of rape and sexual abuse. Our counsellors provide support through person-centred therapy in places where people feel safe and comfortable. This may be in a private facility in the community or at our centre in Truro. Our service is proven to help, with 92% of adults who use our services reporting an increase in emotional health and wellbeing.

Trauma Therapy is also available for adults who have experienced other life-changing incidents. Therapy ranges from EMDR to trauma-focused CBT and is tailored to individual circumstances.
We currently provide a trauma focused service in West Cornwall for adults who are out of work through Who Dares Works, a Building Better Opportunities project led by Active Plus and funded by the European Social Fund and National Lottery Community Fund.
This service helps people to process and understand past trauma and to manage it in a way that helps them to move forward in their lives.
We are building a bank of useful resources and links to other organisations and services that provide wider support for people and families.
