Threshold Women’s Services

We are not currently taking referrals for Threshold’s Counselling Service but we will be welcoming referrals in the near future and will post updates here.

Threshold 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 are 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. Occasional crèche sessions to support some activities.

Not all BHT’s mental health services are residential. The Threshold Women’s Counselling Service provides a lifeline to many women. This is the account of one of them.

“I found out about the service through Survivors’ Network. I was in a distressed state due to recent abuse and decided to go to Threshold because I wanted some more help and support. When I initially came to the Drop In I was very distressed. Staff were concerned about me because of the state that I was in, but I felt very comfortable talking to the Drop In workers.

“Before going to the service I was scared to go out, so the first few times I came I had to have someone to support me to get there. I then started using the bus to get there by myself and it was Threshold who gave me the confidence to go outside. I started looking forward to the days that the Drop In ran.
