Crisis Point (TW's for religious imagery on the home-page and music - it doesn't seem to be a religious organisation, but the imagery is a little too close for me, so thought I'd add the TW.)


Services including 1-2-1 counselling for both male and female survivors, inpatient stays in a specialist centre, advocates if you choose to report, group counselling, signposting and guidance.

Male rape/CSA one-on-one anonymous counselling via computer

Survivors UK has started one of these, modelled on the well-known RAINN online chatline in the U.S. The British equivalent is available only four days a week, and for a maximum session-time of half an hour, but it's a start.

The Freedom Programme - A person I know highly recommends this course, and said it changed their life and made them learn a huge amount about their life and about how to avoid abusive people in future.

The Freedom Programme is a domestic violence programme which was created by Pat Craven who holds the copyright (all rights reserved) and evolved from her work with perpetrators of domestic violence.
