What We Do
Individual and Group Counselling
Riseup offers individual counselling to those who have experienced the trauma of domestic violence and abuse in an intimate partner relationship. Any form of abuse has the potential to have a deep and long term effect on someone’s ability to live life fully. Unravelling the complexities is difficult, and often requires the help of a trained and caring counsellor. Riseup Counsellors specialize in the area of family violence and abuse.
Riseup offers psychoeducational programming on the topic of intimate partner violence to educate, spread awareness, and to ultimately help decrease its prevalence. Programming can be delivered to community groups, businesses, and anyone wanting more information on the topic.
