1-1 counselling

Is an opportunity to talk to someone who understands the complexity of issues sexual abuse can create. Telling your story and having someone really listen to you can be enormously helpful. Exploring what has been previously hidden or pushed away can allow the past to be put to rest and enable a new future to emerge.

All of our counsellors are trained to deal with issues of male sexual violence. We offer a choice of 12 weeks, 6 months or 9 month counselling contracts and we have both male and female counsellors.

Partners, families and friends

We recognise that partners and families of men who have disclosed sexual abuse often need support and help in sorting out their own feelings. That is why our 1-1 counselling service is open to anyone affected by the sexual assault of males.


Counselling at Mankind will normally involve a 50 minute session once a week and will involve a fee based on a sliding scale. This will take into account employment status and current financial status to arrange an affordable fee.
