We know that talking about domestic and family violence is hard. When you contact Safe Haven Community, you will talk to a trained counsellor who will listen and support you in what feels right for you and your situation.
Counselling provides a safe place to discuss, explore and work through experiences of abuse and violence. The support and information you gain through counselling can play an important role in your journey towards healing from the impact of your experiences.
Exposure to this abuse can have a complex and long lasting impact. Reaching out for support is not always easy, but it's an essential step in the healing process of regaining self-confidence and self-worth. Confidential appointments are conducted over the phone and last for about one hour in duration and are offered free of charge.
To make an appointment for the support you need once you have left a domestic violence relationship, please phone us on 1800 042 836.
Our staff will gather information to assist in identifying how to best respond to your needs. This involves talking with you about what is, or has been happening. This information is passed to our counsellors who will contact you within 24 hours and if appropriate for your needs, will offer you confidential counselling support.
If you are in danger, don’t feel safe, or fear for someone else’s safety, call Triple Zero (000) immediately and ask for police.
For non-urgent police assistance in Queensland, phone Policelink on 131 444.
