Improves the health and wellbeing of women with life controlling issues on the Restore Programme by providing psychodynamic, trauma-specific counselling to survivors of abuse.

Enables victims of modern slavery to process and overcome the psychological consequences of complex trauma with the assistance of trained counsellors throughout the UK.

Through working alongside the counsellors, this increases the City Heart’s staff knowledge and understanding about the specific care each client requires and receives.

Our Counselling service is unique because:

  • We employ counsellors trained in psychodynamic and complex trauma-specific techniques
  • We are able to offer flexible sessions tailored to the needs of the individual


As therapists we feel so privileged to be involved in the work of City Hearts. We are working with the extremes of trauma and fragility but experience such strength and courage in our clients. We are all passionate about this work and feel honoured to be part of the incredible healing we observe time and time again.

I, personally, also feel privileged to be working with an amazing team of counsellors as well as an excellent wider team of special people.
