Kingston Womens Centre provides affordable, long-term counselling for women living in Kingston and the surrounding boroughs, as well as supporting counsellors training and development.
We are currently the only agency providing long-term affordable counselling in Kingston. When one person in the family seeks counselling, there is often a beneficial effect on all the family relationships including children. Women who have experienced abuse or who have a mental health diagnosis benefit greatly from longer term relational counselling in which trust can be built up over time so that sensitive issues can be explored in safe environment.
We aim to create a safe place where women from all backgrounds are welcome.
We provide one to one, weekly counselling for up to 2 years.
All the counselling is subsidised: the fee for counselling is based on a sliding scale according to income.
We provide support and supervision for all the counsellors who work at the centre.
