    Victim Counseling (Aalborg, Esbjerg, Copenhagen)

    Have you or someone you care about experienced a traumatic event? Often times such events cause a physical, emotional and/or psychological reaction. Have you for example been the victim of assault, violence, rape, burglary, robbery, a traffic accident or another form of traumatic accident? In that case, talking to someone about your experience might be very helpful.

    Offerrådgivningen helps victims, witnesses and relatives in relation to violent and traumatic experiences. When you contact your local offerrådgivning, you will be assigned your own counsellor, whom you can tell what happened. The counsellor will try to guide and help you, and most importantly: listen and pay attention to what you are saying.

    The Offerrådgivning is free and all the counsellors are bound by professional secrecy. If you wish, you can remain anonymous. You can choose to talk to a counsellor on your phone and/or you can set up a physical meeting. Your counsellor will assist you in figuring out the best way to help you.
