Delight Counselling

Incest & Sexual Abuse Counselling

If anyone has been pressured or forced into taking part of any kind of sexual activity with a family member or anyone else, it can leave the individual feeling a mix of emotions. Many of those emotions leave them feeling confused, angry, frightened, upset and anxious. 

 

An incident like this can also lead to feelings of isolation, addiction or even harming themselves. A lack of trust is often another affect someone who has been sexualy abused may feel. 

Incest & Sexual Abuse Counselling

It’s common that someone who has been sexually abused may have become suspicious of the people around them. If you’ve been sexually abused the most important thing you need to understand is that it’s not your fault. It doesn’t matter how long or recent the incident happened, you will need to process your feelings and emotions. 

Sexual abusers often make their victims feel as though they are alone and also encourage them not to speak to people. Emotional suppression is often a method people use to make uncomfortable thoughts and feelings more manageable. However, many learn that this method does not work well overtime and can lead to serious issues.

How can Counselling help?

The first step is to talk about what you encoutered and then we can begin to help you process your emotions attatched to the incest and sexual abuse. We’ll help you cope with the emotions you’re currently feeling. We will also help you regain control back over your life by helping you cope with what happened. 

Each case is very different, so the sessions will be completely tailored to your needs.
