Threshold Women’s Services

(Monday and Tuesday)

Threshold Women's ServicesThreshold provides support to women with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, self-harm, post-traumatic stress, chronic low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, parenting issues, birth trauma and perinatal depression.

Many of the women have past or current experience of abuse or violence; most living on low incomes.

We believe that women-only services deliver better outcomes for women, which have wider societal and economic impacts. Increased confidence and holistic support offered enables women to better support their selves, their families and improve outcomes for their children.

We offer:

  1. A range of 1-1 counselling and therapy options offered by trained counsellors, art psychotherapists and volunteer counsellors.
  2. Wellbeing group-work and workshops in protective behaviors, art therapy, post-natal depression and trauma.
  3. Intern placements and volunteering opportunities.
  4. Crèche sessions.
  5. Women only pop up drop-in sessions, in-house and via outreach. Click here to email us for information

Real Life Stories

…it’s been a safe environment to acknowledge my feelings, to cry and not feel overwhelmed. To embrace who I am and find a different way to react in different situations in front of and towards my children…

Such dedicated non-judgemental, patient support. Thank you for holding the therapeutic space when it’s been dark and frightening. The service is brilliant and I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to start my new journey in such a safe space. Thank you.

…has helped me to help myself and grow in self confidence.  In turn, I have been able to support one daughter through depression and the other to deal with health and anxiety…

I was too scared to leave the house. I hadn’t left in years. My wildest expectations have been met… I’m alive!
