Horizon Sexual Violence Support Groups

Our support groups aim to empower survivors of rape, sexual violence or childhood abuse.

Peer group support

Peer Support Groups

Our peer support groups bring together people with shared experiences to support each other.

Feedback from survivors tells us that having been a victim of sexual violence or abuse can be very isolating.  Feeling alone or different to everybody else adds to the trauma and anxiety that they already feel. Knowing that there are others who have been through similar experiences and talking together can really help.

Being in a group where you feel accepted and understood can help you if you are on the counselling waiting list or if you don’t feel that counselling is for you. It is a way to recieve and give support to other survivors.

We run groups across Gwent, facilitated by our Peer Support volunteers, offering useful information on coping with the trauma of sexual violence and abuse, introducing ideas and approaches that others have found helpful.

Support for Family and Friends

The after effects of sexual violence can be felt by not just the survivor, but by their partner, family members and friends.

We offer support to family and friends and promote understanding of the impact of sexual violence and abuse.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Art Therapy

Creative Therapies

We offer a range of creative therapies, including art therapy and equine therapy, as part of our commitment to providing holistic support.

Art therapy is delivered on a group basis, with participants meeting for weekly sessions (on-line or in-person) over the course of each programme.

New group-based support options are being developed all the time.
