The term Sexual violence is any unwanted sexual act or activity, including: rape, sexual assault, child sexual abuse, sexual harassment, rape within marriage/relationships, forced marriage.
As many as 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men will be a victim of sexual violence at some point in their lifetime.
Often, people who have experienced sexual violence, either as an adult or as a child, have not sought any kind of therapy directly for sexual violence because the idea of having to discuss the details of their experiences, is more than they can bear.
Because of the therapies that I use, my clients do not need to go into details of any negative events that they may have experienced. I may need to know if it happened once or multiple times. I may also need to know their age or ages at the times of these experiences. However, it is very rare that I need to know any more than that to be able to help them.
I introduced this page to my website because I have come to realise over the years that more than 15% of my clients had experienced some form of sexual violence by the time that they came to me for help.
Very few of my clients came to me to help them directly with the sexual violence, instead they came for help with issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, weight loss, anger management, phobias, self-harming, eating disorders, addictions, stop smoking, public speaking, low self-esteem, lack of confidence etc.
Through psychotherapy, analytical hypnotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), emotional freedom techniques (EFT) and mindfulness, I could help you, in a safe and controlled manner, to release and let go of the feelings and emotions from the sexual violence. I could help you to rebuild your confidence and self-esteem and help you to truly leave the past behind, allowing you to move forward in your life, in a positive and healthy way.
