Some of the websites listed are only in Icelandic but generally people in Iceland speak English and fairly many speak other languages as well so not speaking Icelandic should not prevent you from getting the support you need!

Women Of Multicultural Ethnicity Network - W.O.M.E.N. in Iceland
They certainly don’t specialize in SA but I thought I’d list them here anyway as I think they are rather wonderful and might be of help to any non-Icelander residing in Iceland and needing support.
Amongst their activities are weekly peer counseling sessions where trained “counselors provide free and confidential services to women of foreign origin living in Iceland. Peer counselors can give information about services and resources that are available, about life in Iceland and are also available just to chat and with other women.” Check their website for more info.
