About

Our mission is to provide high-quality counselling for women in the York area who are experiencing difficulties as a result of current or past emotional stress and trauma, regardless of their ability to pay and for as long as they need it.

Our vision is a city where women who need help have access to quality affordable face-to-face counselling and psychotherapy within weeks, not years, and are never turned away.

We are the only organisation in York where the usual maximum of 6 sessions per person does not apply and we offer our service to many women free of charge
