The WISH Centre is a vibrant and proactive community based model that provides self harm, sexual and domestic violence support and recovery for young people. We do this through a mix of intensive long term psychotherapy, one-to-one support, peer support group work and early intervention and prevention projects and campaigns, out of hours text based and online support, and capacity building and training of professionals.
The WISH Centre has been operating in the London Borough of Harrow, NW London, since 2004.
We support young people ages 12-25 years who self harm or who have experienced sexual violence, exploitation and abuse.
We provide medium to longer term open ended therapy for young people ages 11-19 through our Safe 2 Speak counselling service, and can see them in schools in Harrow or at our Centre. This is for young people who self harm or who have experienced domestic or sexual abuse or neglect.
Please check availability of our therapy for survivors of sexual violence ages 12- 25 years.
Young women and female to male transgender young people ages 12-18 can also join our award winning Girls Xpress! weekly self harm peer support group.
An Outreach programme of one to one and text based support also runs for young people using our services.
See details of these services on our website and on how to get help in Make a Referral. All our services are free for young people.
WISH Harrow also works in schools to combat child sexual exploitation and can run assemblies and teacher training as well as supporting young people at risk.
If you are a young person who would like to volunteer, raise funds for us, or are involved in a school citizenship scheme please also get in touch.
