Telephone and Webchat Helpline
Are you having a difficult time? Would it help to talk to another woman who can help you think things through?
Why get in touch? Women contact us for many reasons. They may be feeling distressed, overwhelmed, upset or frightened and need someone to support them and understand how they are feeling.
Who can get in touch? Any woman, girl or non-binary person aged 16+ who is in need of a ‘listening ear’ can call us or use the webchat. If your first language isn’t English, the webchat offers automatic translation so you can talk to us in your own language. Whatever you are feeling, or whatever has happened, we will believe you and will be there for you.
What we offer…We will listen to you and support you to talk about how you are feeling and what’s going on in your life. Talking about and exploring difficulties and feelings can help you to make sense of what’s happening and why you feel the way you do. Just to feel heard and understood can be very powerful. We can offer you up to 50 minutes to talk, either on the phone or online via the webchat.
If needed, we can also tell you about Womankind’s other services and sources of support that may be helpful for you.
We welcome your feedback so that we can continue to improve and develop the Helpline service. If you have recently called us please take a few minutes to fill in our online feedback questionnaire.
