Due to the worsening crisis of Covid 19, and the Government’s preference for people to work from home, where possible, Axis Counsellors and ISVAs will be working remotely.
The Groups and Workshops will be suspended during this period, but if you feel that you need any support whilst the groups are unavailable please feel free to refer yourself back into Axis Services.
To ensure the safe well being of both the clients and staff, our Counselling Service is only currently offering telephone support.
ISVA Service – We are working hard to provide face to face appointments where they are required, however, there are still some short-term disruptions to this service due to circumstances beyond our control, such as staff members having to self-isolate. For anyone not wanting support face to face, we are offering remote appointments. This can be by a variety of methods, to suit you, such as video-call; telephone call; instant messaging etc.
If you are thinking about using Axis, you can contact us on:

Just thank you for everything. I have my life back & discovered a part of me I’ve never been able to see before. I am a better person due to you.
ISVA has been very supporting towards me. I wish I could have appreciated it more at the beginning, I am very grateful.
We felt safe & trusted her. Any questions she answered or found out for us. She could calm a situation and possessed a sense of humour which could lighten the situation.
This has genuinely been the best therapy I’ve ever had
The ISVA Service has been vital & fundamental to my recovery – help with housing and fleeing domestic violence in particular.
I would like to say thank you, Axis has helped me more than I ever expected & has always been warm & kind.
I would have been in a very different place right now if I had not received this support. Thank you.
Without this service and support I wouldn’t have been able to cope. This service has been invaluable to me.
I feel like a new person internally with how I am able to feel ‘okay’ about what happened. I am so appreciative of the service.
My ISVA contact was superb, she was supported for the whole family, she explained everything which was happening. We could not have through that without her.
I am very impressed & hope to be able to support this charity in some way in the future.
Dealt with much more than I imagined. Everyone is caring and very welcoming.
I think it’s a brilliant service. You helped me on a journey.
The lady who helped me was great more like a friend and helped through everything.
I very much appreciate all the practical and emotional advice & input from ISVA & pre-trial counsellor, and especially support at trial.
Fantastic Service with upmost respect. I have had total trust in my counsellor
I may not have followed through with court process without my ISVA.
I have never felt so comfortable talking to someone. You helped me so much more than I can put into words.
I felt very understood & the practical guidance invaluable. I would not be where I am without Axis.
I feel much more confident with myself and happier. Thank you for being there.
My ISVA was a very kind and helpful person who showed me the way forward which I would not have done without her help.
Me and my husband would like to thank Axis for all you did to make the two years it took easier and for explaining everything when nothing made sense. Thank you so much for helping us move on with our lives.
I feel the service was brilliant and it has given me thoughts about trying to help others.
I have found that Axis has given me the confidence to deal with my previous issues for the first time.
My ISVA supported me so much she made me feel like I was normal not crazy like I had been feeling before I met her.
To be believed has meant so much; it’s time for closure and healing. Thank you very much for your support.
Just want say thank you for your support
This is the best service I’ve used in 35 years. Helpful and caring staff 10/10
Thankfully, I can have full open counselling now to talk about the abuse. 30 years plus of keeping the abuse to myself.
The Counselling has changed my life! The choices are now clearer as well as the priorities!
Extremely grateful to have had ISVA and the related counselling throughout the ordeal of coping with the criminal Justice System.
During the court process and on the day in court the ISVA representative was incredibly supportive and I don’t think I would have got through the day without her presence and support.
Excellent support – always on the end of the phone. Very caring & friendly, offering support & advice.
