Roshni Birmingham Free Confidential Multi-lingual Counselling service for South Asian Women Affected by Domestic Abuse

Published: 21/10/2020

BSMHFT are working together with Roshni to offer free counselling support for those service users who have been identified or disclosed as experiencing domestic abuse.  

Roshni is a specialist domestic abuse service aimed at supporting South Asian victims of domestic abuse/forced marriage and honour-based violence who may face difficulties in seeking help because of language barriers.

Sometimes those close to you can make you feel afraid or depressed. They could be a partner, ex-partner or someone else you know, an adult, child or wider family members.

At these times of stress, anxiety and low mood can take over and interfere with all aspects of our lives.

Counselling can offer you an impartial perspective within a supportive therapeutic relationship to work through the issues you are struggling with. Through therapy we can help you to understand the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that cause you distress.

The service offers up to 5 weeks of counselling with an experienced therapist specialising in domestic abuse who is able to speak to you in one of the South Asian languages.

The Counselling service is open between 9am to 5pm on weekdays.

If you would like to talk through your options, ask questions or to access the counselling service, please contact us on: 0795 849 449 / 0800 953 9666.
