Victims Specialist Counselling Service


Are you a Victim of Crime or Interpersonal Violence ?

we currently work with the Victims First Specialist Counselling Service to provide therapeutic interventions to victims of crime across Oxfordshire.

If you have been a victim of crime and require support you can contact Victims First on 0300 1234 148 or by visiting www.victims-first.org.uk
 
You may have directly experienced domestic or family violence, sexual assault, a physical assault, armed robbery, home invasion or any other event that involves interpersonal violence.

You may be eligible to apply for Approved Counselling if you:
                                       *  been a direct victim of act of violence.
                                       *  witnessed an act of violence
                                       *  a parent/guardian of a victim (aged under 18) of an act of violence
                                       *  are a relative of a homicide victim.

Clients are not required to have reported the act of violence to police and the matter does not have to have gone through the court process. However, the act of violence needs to have occurred in the United Kingdom. 

We can refer you to Victim First Specialist Counselling Service for an immediate appointment.

Therapeutic Treatments are funded by Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley Police under its Victims First Specialist Counselling Service. Oxford Health Psychotherapy Services provides free face-to-face, Skype or Telephone counselling to victims of crimes (under the scheme) to enable access to counselling to assist them to cope with the emotional and psychological effects of the crime.
 
Counselling benefits are provided to address the psychological injury arising as a result of the offence. It is recognised that in some instances the victimisation gives rise to concurrent issues that while not directly related to the offence are considered to be commonly occurring issues due to the nature of the offence. It is recognized that these issues need to be addressed in conjunction with counselling specific to the offence (e.g. alcohol and substance abuse in cases involving historical sexual abuse).
 
 
 
Therapy & Counselling services are provided by a Qualified and experienced Counselling Psychologist, Victoria Jagne, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and also registered as an Approved Counsellor/Therapist under the Victims First Specialist Counselling Service.
 
Victoria has a strong understanding of trauma and experience providing therapeutic services to victims of crime. Her aim as an Approved Counsellor/Therapist is to facilitate with clients, as far as possible, a return to their level of functioning prior to the act of crime.
