PEI Rape & Sexual Assault Centre

Individual Counselling

PEIRSAC Counselling Services are:

  • For adults (over age 16) of all genders who have experienced recent or historic sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse
  • Free of charge
  • Confidential
  • Provided by professional therapists who are experienced and trained in trauma recovery

To make a request for counselling, call (902) 368-8055. Please leave a confidential voice mail message which includes: your name, number and whether we can leave a detailed message at that number. A therapist will get back to you as soon as possible. When a therapist returns your call, she will ask you a series of questions to gain an appreciation of your situation. All potential clients will be invited to come in for an initial consultation session. This initial session provides support and the opportunity to explore whether we are the right service at the right time. If we have a wait list, you will be advised of this. Recent assault victims will receive priority

Unfortunately, our counselling program is not able to operate a crisis support line and therefore we are not able to guarantee that a therapist will be available for immediate response. If you are feeling overwhelmed, please contact your nearest emergency department hospital or call 911. See our two brochures "Our Services for Survivors of Sexual Assault" and "Our Services for Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse" under Educational Resources.
