Helping women affected by domestic violence

  • Phoebe offers emotional health support for immigrant women affected by domestic violence.


  • The consequences of domestic violence are many; they include depression, low self- esteem and a sense of powerlessness. We are here to listen, help and support you.


  • We can provide you with one-to-one counselling to help you start to rebuild your confidence in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.


  • Our counsellors – all women - students counsellers from University Campus Suffolk and Matrix. They are professional in giving women the specialist support you need to cope if you are feeling depressed, bad about yourself, confused and unsure about how to deal with the things happening in your life.


  • Phoebe counselling gives you the time and space to talk, in confidence.

Please call us on - 01473 231566 to book an appointment.

Below are the compliments received for the domestic violence training held on 17 April 2013 at UCS.

Lorraine Willoughby, Workforce Development, Suffolk Social Care Services

"Excellent presentation which evoked lots of discussion.

  • Provided a specific perspective with cultural/ethnic minority considerations which was excellent.
  • Good to have handouts to take away.
  • Enjoyed the speaker who clearly knew their subject and could answer queries."

Jan Comas Coles - Social Worker and tutor for work based social work students.

"Really interesting. The workshop helped me to understand that 'domestic violence' wasn't a 'cultural' act as this is something that is often said so I have learnt this is not true." Excellent"

Caroline Mortiner, Independent Practice Educator

"Interactive and interesting - generating discussion. Presented well with handouts to aid supervision, discussion with students."

Social Worker, Mental Health, West Suffolk

"Found it very helpful - raised good points to use with students. Increased my awareness and knowledge and recognition that we cant blame it on culture and abuse is abuse, whatever the culture."

Aidan Jaron, Independent Practice Educator

The presentation was really interesting and informative. The discussion that occured was also very stimulating. The cultural perspective you were able to bring to the session was valuable."
