Release offers one-to-one counselling and a range of therapeutic groups to women in Brighton and the surrounding areas, providing opportunity to change how they feel and to live better.
Release is open to all women regardless of age, gender, race, nationality, faith, sexual orientation or disability.
Release Counselling and Therapy for Women is a community counselling project, set up in January 2013, to provide affordable counselling for women in Brighton & Hove, experiencing any mental health distress.
Since our launch in 2013, we have had referrals from over 600 women, and we currently work with approximately 300 individuals each year.
Release Counselling and Therapy for Women was founded and is run by Ellen Baldwin (Chief Executive), a team of counselling staff, and a board of trustees. We offer placement opportunities to carefully selected trainee counsellors. To find out more, please get in touch.
We have a small counselling team at Release, and all of our counsellors are qualified, fully insured, supervised and work within the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) Ethical Framework.
As a team we have additional specialism in the areas of trauma & sexual violation, couples therapy, maternal mental health, addictions and bereavement & loss.
Release Counselling and Therapy for Women is a Registered Charity (No. 1192772).
