Physical, psychological and domestic violence

Physical, mental or sexual violence against women very often takes place within the own social environment. The perpetrator is often their own boyfriend or husband or someone else in their social environment. The spiral of violence can begin insidiously. Victims often remain silent out of shame or fear of the perpetrator. At the Women’s Counseling Center, you can get an appointment quickly and without red tape, anonymously if you wish.

The consultation is confidential and free of charge.

We will help you find the best path for you and your children. It does not matter whether you want to continue the partnership or are considering a separation. The specific content of the consulting sessions depends entirely on your individual needs.
