Refer yourself and Start your Counselling Journey with Quetzal.
Quetzal supports women
living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland aged 16 and above
who have experienced childhood sexual abuse
You do not need to have reported the abuse to access our services
If you are not living in those areas and still require support or did not experience childhood sexual abuse, please check our list of useful numbers.
If you are a male living in those areas who experienced childhood sexual abuse, please contact First Steps Leicester
If you feel ready to take the first step and access counselling, you can refer yourself by filling and sending us the Referral form below or contacting us.
We believe cost should never be a barrier for survivors of childhood sexual abuse to access counselling so our counselling is provided free of charge, with donations greatly appreciated however as we are a small charity there is a significant waiting list to begin one on one counselling. If you are looking for a specialist counsellor and are able to pay privately we can put you in touch with our highly trained therapists who also run private practice. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Beginning counselling is a significant step. Many women find the experience challenging as well as beneficial. We can provide a safe space for you to explore your emotions; however, counselling does require a personal and practical commitment to be effective. Please watch this video which answers some of the main questions you may have.
