Survivors in Transistion

84 Fore St

[email protected]

Survivors in Transition (SiT) was started as a voluntary organisation back in 2009 to address the lack of specialist support available in Suffolk for adult survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA).

SiT started out by offering a coffee morning for survivors to come together and share experiences and support one another and has grown and developed steadily, responding to user identified need.

SiT support male and female adult survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse, Violence and Exploitation and aims to empower survivors to take control of their lives and cope better with the daily effects the abuse has left them with.

We aim to provide the kind of support that is right for each individual who makes contact with us, we take into account personal circumstances to assure that the individual is treated – not just the problem. We achieve these aims by offering a wide means of contact so that people can contact us in whatever medium they feel comfortable with. We spend time listening so that we can provide the best support in a non-judgmental, welcoming and safe environment.

What We Can Offer You
  • Listening service
  • Information, advice and guidance and referrals to other specialist organisations
  • Counselling readiness sessions and ore counselling framework (Hold Fast)
  • Individual counselling and therapy
  • Individual support plans (practical and emotional support)
  • Group support sessions for men and women
  • Peer support sessions
  • Family work
  • Phone and online counselling

Peer Support Network (PSN)

You can call the PSN team on 0300 111 6000 or 07595 086134
[email protected]

What is it?

The network is how and where you use and practice the PSN skills you learn on the course. You will be invited to join it once you have successfully completed a PSN training course. Membership is optional. The PSN Network is owned and run by all the people within it (not by Suffolk Mind).

How can I use the PSN Network?

You contact people to arrange a PSN session with them at a time convenient to you both. This can be in person, on the telephone or via Skype. And you can come along to network meetings run by network members. Networks for specific interest groups, local communities or workplaces can also be created.

Network meetings

The main purpose of a network meeting is to exchange PSN sessions. There is often question time, discussion and refresher practices to maintain your PSN skills. People also enjoy the chance to catch up with others in the network, meet new network members and to share some social time.
