Talking therapy and movement psychotherapy helping women to live happier lives


One of the key objectives in setting up the Another Way Women's Foundation was to try to help women living extremely tough lives to find ways to make their lives brighter and better.


As such, we're really delighted to announce our new partnership with Brighton Women’s Centre (BWC) – a charity that has been supporting self-identifying women from all backgrounds, facing all kinds of issues, to live happier lives for over 45 years.


Their aims are to empower women and promote independence in a safe, inclusive, women-only space, and they do this via a range of services; including counselling, groupwork, open access drop ins, holistic therapies, volunteer training and self-development courses.


The grant provided by AWWF was matched by ‘The Big Give’ and is being used to support BWC’s Therapy Service. The funding will help ensure that the team of both talking therapists and movement psychotherapists can continue to provide accessible and holistic support to women. The BWC therapists are honorary and volunteer therapists, receiving high levels of supervision and reflective practice according to BACP guidelines. Many of their clients have multiple complex needs and have faced many disadvantages in life and may be deemed ‘too unwell’ or ‘too chaotic’ to access support from other services, which also tend to have a much longer waiting list. As a result they benefit greatly from acceptance and the woman-centred support at BWC.


BWC offers both face-to-face and remote support, to suit the access needs of each client. They can also offer specialist support to women who have been victims of crime who may need to testify in court. Additionally, women who face childcare barriers to accessing therapy can utilise their onsite creche, which is Ofsted-rating Outstanding. They receive consistently positive feedback from their clients for the high-quality, holistic therapeutic support they provide.


It's a joy to be supporting such a worthy, impactful and inspiration cause 😊 – find out more about the work BWC do here.
