CSASS provides a counselling service for anyone over the age of 18 who has experienced any form of sexual violence or abuse at any time in their lives. We also provide counselling support for friends, family and professionals who have been affected themselves through supporting survivors. Counselling is delivered at our office, in Chester city centre.
Counselling can be hard work, and survivors need to be able to commit to attend appointments reliably, in order for it to be effective and helpful. Please consider our LiveChat or supportline, or monthly drop-in group, for survivors who might not be ready for counselling yet.
CSASS is a specialist service, adhering to Rape Crisis National Standards, and is an organisational member of BACP.
