How to Access Counselling:
Wexford Rape Crisis provides adult counselling to women and men aged 18 and over.
To speak to one of us about accessing counselling can be done in a variety of ways. You can call us on the freephone number 1800330033 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We understand that you may be feeling anxious about taking the first step to getting help, but be assured that all our counsellors are fully qualified and have years of experience of supporting people affected by DSGBV.
Once you make contact, we will set up an appointment for the assessment, this is nothing to worry about. It is simply to take some basic information from you and to tell you about what we do and how we do it.
Throughout Covid-19, with respect to lockdown measures, an assessment takes place over the phone. Outside of lockdown, an assessment will be carried out face to face.
After your assessment, if you decide to move on to counselling, you will be placed on the waiting list. We have waiting lists for each town – Wexford, Enniscorthy, New Ross and Gorey – and your waiting time will depend on where you go and how many people are on the waiting list ahead of you.
We aim to have a client on the waiting list for no longer than three months, however, it rarely takes this long and we aim to get clients a counselling session as soon as possible. When an appointment becomes available, WRC will contact you with a date and time.
Most clients have a counselling session once per week. The number of sessions vary from person to person and this can be discussed with your counsellor. You can access up to 50 counselling sessions with your counsellor.
Cost of Counselling:
The first 10 counselling sessions are free. From your 11th counselling session onward, a minimum payment of €10 is requested.
