The impact of sexual violence is traumatic. Whether the assault was by a stranger or a family member, if you’ve been raped it can feel as though a piece of you had been stolen.
Rape can leave its victims feeling ashamed, often with fear of speaking out in case they’re not believed. They may have ambivalent feelings about their body, they may self-harm or isolate themselves, and they may lack confidence and avoid intimate relationships.
Counselling can, over time, help you reclaim the part that was violated. We have therapists who work with both male and female victims of rape – helping you build up trust and supporting you on your journey to feeling whole again.
