Our services are for women and men over the age of 16, regardless of race, class, sexual orientation, disability and special needs. As an organisational member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy we are bound by its Ethical Framework. ISAS takes self referrals and those from GPs, mental health teams, social services, probation service, prison services, criminal justice teams, drug and alcohol teams, voluntary sector organisations and other counselling services. All referrals are offered an initial assessment appointment within two weeks of the initial contact and advised of waiting times for counselling in their particular area. When the Counselling Line is closed, a message can be left which will be responded to within 48 hours.
In August , the American film director and actor Woody Allen was accused by his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow , then seven years old, of having sexually molested her in the home of her adoptive mother, the actress Mia Farrow , in Bridgewater, Connecticut. When the allegation was made, Allen and Mia Farrow had been in a year relationship and had three children together: two adopted, Dylan and Moses, and one biological, Satchel now known as Ronan Farrow. Dylan has repeated the allegation several times as an adult, although with modifications of Mia's narrative.
