Sexual Abuse Counselling
I've devoted a separate page for this as this can underpin many counselling sessions. It's a subject very close to my heart. Sadly adults that were abused as children are all too common. One in three women have encountered some type of sexual abuse and now one in seven men.
You may be reading this and suspect you may have been abused in the past but can’t clearly remember it? Or you may have some very clear upsetting memories that won't go away. Either way - whatever your experience - it will have a significant impact on you and very probably without realising it. I’m sure if you are thinking of disclosing anything like this to a counsellor it's going to be really difficult for you, but I’ve been in your position so I know first hand what that feels like.
Rest assured I will do everything I can to help you, give you a safe space to talk, give you time and complete confidentiality, and reassurance that you are doing the right thing. It won’t change the past, what happened, but it will change you and help you come to terms with it, heal from it and move forward with your life with less pain.
There are techniques that I am skilled and qualifed in that are really helpful at removing unwanted traumatic memories, which are gentle, very effective and remove the need for repeating traumatic detail. I know this as I’ve tried them myself and then trained very thoroughly in them so that I can help others. Thats why I'm here. I'm a survivor giving back.
If you feel you would like to take the first step, contact me.
Always happy to talk
