Counselling & One to One Services

Our service is delivered by 19 counsellors who have a Diploma in Counselling and who are either accredited or are pursuing accreditation. Counselling was one of the first services offered by Derry Well Women. It remains key to our commitment to developing programmes by listening to women.
