Counselling and Support
Counselling is available face to face with P.A.T.H.S. Counselling Partners located around the country Connect with a Counsellor. Some counsellors also offer Skype counselling.
Apart from initial contact through the 0800 number and email
(see Contact Us) there is
likely to be a fee for counselling. Most
counsellors are willing to negotiate a fee if payment is difficult or
will discuss options.
We aim to protect people's privacy. Phone and email support is confidential, as is counselling support. Rules of professional confidentiality apply.
P.A.T.H.S. also offers a private Facebook Support Group for
women who have experienced an abortion. This is a safe place to share
your story. Email Chrissie firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
Other Support Organisations also offer a range of support. It pays to look around to see what might suit you or be helpful for you.(See Other Support Organisations)
one to talk to
I can't say what it was like. I felt so alone with my secret. I didn't know what to do. This shadow followed me wherever I went. It was such a relief to be able to tell someone about it. Sharing it was painful and brought up lots of feelings. But the woman from P.A.T.H.S. listened to my story and I could finally share my grief. I wasn't alone. I will never forget my poor wee baby.
