Sexual Abuse

Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse constitutes a severe psychological issue and involves any non-consensual sexual activity imposed on an individual. This encompasses sexual assault, rape, molestation, and incest, among other forms of abuse. The consequences of sexual abuse can be profound, potentially leading to various mental health and behavioral concerns, such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and substance misuse.

Survivors of sexual abuse may grapple with feelings of shame, guilt, and self-blame, and may have difficulty trusting others or forming healthy relationships. Additionally, they might struggle with sexual functioning and encounter sexual issues, including problems with arousal and sexual desire.

Addressing sexual abuse typically involves psychotherapy, which aids individuals in processing their experiences, developing coping strategies, and working through trauma and shame. Helpful therapeutic approaches for treating the aftermath of sexual abuse include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and trauma-focused therapy.

It is essential to recognize that healing from sexual abuse is a gradual process and that every individual's experience is unique. It is crucial for survivors of sexual abuse to seek support and treatment to facilitate their healing and growth.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
