Mission Statement

We are Breaking the Cycle. 

 

Breaking the Cycle is a specialist counselling service providing 1-1 counselling support to children and young people  aged 4 – 16 years old whose family life has been affected by domestic abuse.  This service is for children and young people who live in Newcastle and who no longer live with the abusive adult. 

 

Our counsellors are members of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, or other relevant professional bodies.  Our counsellors work in accordance with their relevant ethical framework, keeping the client at the centre of their work.   

 

We know that domestic abuse can affect children and young people in many ways and they often display signs of trauma linked to this domestic abuse. We will listen to your thoughts and feelings and we will support you to express them.

Our Vision

Our volunteers aim to build relationships and help young people feel positive about their futures.

We do this by giving them stability, support and guidance through being carefully matched with a fully trained adult that is committed to spend time with them.
