Abstract

The longitudinal study described in this article evaluated long-term counselling provided at a women’s health centre in the UK for service users on low incomes. The article focuses on the qualitative aspect of the study in which 59 women were interviewed individually before and/or after their counselling. The interviews explored how women make sense of long-term counselling in the context of their gendered experiences and complex needs. The data were analysed using thematic analysis informed by a feminist orientation and attachment theory. Four main themes emerged:‘violence and loss in the context of female oppression’, ‘a sanctuary for women’, ‘non-medicalised long-term counselling in a safe setting’, and ‘benefits of the long view’. Participants attributed various benefits to receiving long-term counselling in a women-only environment. These included gaining employment; reduced suicidal ideation, anxiety and depression; improved physical health, improved confidence and being able to make positive changes in their relationships. The women interviewed post-counselling valued long term-counselling in this context, in contrast to short-term therapy in a medicalised environment. Wider implications with regards to clinical practice and research are discussed.
