Kerry Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre

Who we are
Kerry Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre provides professional, free and confidential counselling, information and support.

Our Centre is opened Monday-Friday from 9am until 5pm. (Appointments can be arranged for outside of these hours if necessary.)

Our main service is based in Tralee, but our outreach endeavours to meet the needs of victims and their families throughout the county by having rooms available that meet our criteria for privacy in Killarney, Dingle and Listowel and wherever necessary

The Kerry Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre was established in 1992 to provide a professional, confidential and free counselling service to female and male survivors of:

Rape
Date Rape
Marital Rape
Incest
Child Sexual Abuse
Sexual Assault
Sexual Harassment
All Forms of Sexual Violence
We believe that survivors of sexual violence and abuse have the right to be treated with respect and sensitivity.

We aim to provide a place of help and healing for survivors of rape & sexual abuse by offering care and support in a confidential environment.

Females & Males can avail of our services
Our services are free of charge to client users
All of our services are confidential and can be availed of either on an ongoing basis or once-off
We provide a safe, therapeutic space for our clients

Our Helpline is often the first point of contact with our centre for a lot of people and we can be reached through our freephone number 1800 633 333. This service is operated by trained volunteers and staff.

The helpline is a confidential support service for on-going clients, their families and friends and for anyone who might like to talk about issues relating to sexual violence or abuse. We can provide information, assistance, emotional support and telephone counselling through our helpline.

Telephone counselling involves speaking with one of our counsellors over the phone at a time that suits you. You can call whenever you feel the need to talk, with no appointment or arrangement in advance

We offer crisis one-off sessions, short term and long term counselling for male & female survivors of rape and sexual abuse.

Counselling is a one to one relationship, which provides support and encouragement to allow someone to talk about the experiences and events which have affected their lives. Our counsellors provide a safe and confidential space to enable people to express their thoughts and feelings so they can help themselves to move forward and gain control of their lives. Our counsellors use a non-directive, non-judgemental approach and we place high emphasis on confidentiality for all our counselling services.

We provide support counselling for partners, family members or friends who are affected and feel powerless when a family member/friend is raped or assaulted.
