For male survivors of sexual abuse please go directly to this page and choose the right way for you to contact us. 


We provide counselling and couples counselling to a large variety of men and have other supports available. We have experience with most themes that men live with and after a brief initial meeting match you to the counsellor most likely to work for you.

We also take care of men that have experienced sexual trauma. This takes the form of a peer support service, where our crew meet with a man to help them make the most of whatever happened and get on with their lives. We are often a best first stop for those thinking to seek support for ACC counselling etc. We also run several support groups in this regard. Click here for more information.

Blokes Books and Men’s Sheds are also a big part of our work.
