It is frequently the case that the relatives and partners of sex workers have problems accepting their choice to want to work in this sector. As this group of people often cannot find a suitable person to discuss these difficulties with Phoenix also offers counselling for the relatives and partners. Phoenix can give guidance to help the relatives and partners concerned to come to terms with the situation and can provide information and find out what help can be given.

It should however be borne in mind that Phoenix will not interfere with the decisions taken by the women and men sex workers. Attempts to persuade people who want to work in prostitution to stop doing so cannot be supported. An exception to this rule is in cases where the decision to work in prostitution is not a voluntary decision and has been forced on the person.
