Find Comfort and Peace After Sexual Abuse and Assault
Our Trauma Counsellors have seen how emotional and psychological trauma from sexual assault can become embedded in the nervous system and create ongoing feelings of distrust, loneliness, embarrassment, disconnection and/or guilt. This can leave sexual assault survivors stuck in the daily struggle of trying to let go and move on, while being plagued by trauma-related symptoms and old coping strategies that continue to hold them back or lead to unhealthy habits and behaviours.
