Sexual Assault
Family Violence Counselling

SECASA offers a free counselling service for people in the South Eastern region of Melbourne, Victoria.

How can counselling help?

The experience of sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse or family violence can have far reaching effects on a person’s life, sense of identity and wellbeing. A person’s life may be affected in an ongoing way, with feelings and symptoms often surfacing at times of stress or during life transitions.

Common issues and feelings for our clients include:

  • Feelings of guilt and shame

  • Feelings of worthlessness and reduced self-esteem

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Trauma

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Feeling overwhelmed by the decision to pursue legal matters

SECASA Counsellor/Advocates are trained social workers and psychologists who provide support that focuses on client needs and strengths. We support our clients by working together to create strategies to address the impacts of sexual assault and family violence and improve wellbeing. SECASA also provides advocacy for our clients.

We work from a Victims’ Rights Framework, which prioritises the empowerment of the client through providing choices, options and control over decision making and the counselling process.

SECASA can also provide support for affected family members and carers.
