Charity description

Maya Centre logo
Thank you for visiting Maya Centres profile page on MyDonate.
The Maya Centre is a unique counselling service in Islington for women.

We work to combat the damage from gender-based violence.
Since 1984 we have supported the most vulnerable women in our community: women who have experienced severe trauma through: Domestic violence,physical and/or sexual abuse in childhood.
Women who have experienced trauma overseas in war and conflict or through practices such as FGM and forced marriages.

Services we provide below are free to women who are 18 or over, live or work in Islington and are on benefit level income. 
  • 1:1 psychotherapy & Group therapy sessions.
  • Practical 1:1 support for women is also provided by our community support worker who assists clients attending the Maya centre with a wide range of practical issues.
  • Complementary therapy (Reiki, Therapeutic Massage or Reflexology in order to support both their physical and emotional recovery)
We work with women who face complex difficulties: emotional and physical trauma, gendered violence, poor mental health, loss and separation from their children & families.
This often leads to states of severe isolation. Clients want to change their lives by facing the harm and trauma they have survived and to move on.

The Maya Centre relies on the support and generosity of people like you to fund our vital work in the community. Our free psychotherapy is a ‘life line’ to the vulnerable women we support.

We hope you will become a friend of the Maya Centre by donating what you can today to support our charity.
Thank you.
