Counselling Service

London Black Women's Project (LBWP) is a Black Minority Ethnic organisation that supports women who are survivors of domestic violence/abuse and other forms of gender-based violence, against women and girls.

We can provide one to one confidential counselling for Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee women and girls (11+) who have experienced any form of domestic violence/abuse.

Our counsellors have an integrative approach and work holistically with clients. They have relevant qualifications and are experienced in supporting women and girls suffering from emotional issues, as a result of domestic violence. All are registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by its ethical framework.

We can offer counselling in the following languages: English, Punjabi, Gujarati, Urdu, Hindi, Sylheti, Yoruba and Luganda, either remotely or face to face at our main office in Plaistow.

Service access criteria: Black or Minority Ethnic women who have experienced domestic violence or abuse and are living in any London area. We can also accept referrals for BME young women and girls (11-17 year olds) who have experienced domestic violence or abuse and who live in the following boroughs: Tower Hamlets, Redbridge, Newham and Haringey.
