Sexual Abuse Counselling
A range of problems with emotions, relationships, and other areas of life can stem from the experience of sexual abuse. The abuse may have been experienced as a child or as an adult. While the effects of abuse can persist over a lifetime, survivors are also capable of recovery and growth. With the right support, people experiencing even severe problems can improve enormously.
Sexual abuse can lead to problems with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, or dissociative disorders.
I can provide free psychological counselling for people who have experienced sexual abuse, which is funded by ACC. All people can receive brief counselling and longer-term help is provided for people who have a diagnosable mental condition, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, or Borderline Personality Disorder.
