Survivors of childhood sexual abuse to thrive

Childhood sexual abuse can distort how you see yourself, other people, and your
affective capacities, and can frame sex as traumatic. While self-help books, inspirational
leaders, movement, and exercise are all great ways to maintain your wellbeing, very few
(if any) address the impact of CSA at every level. As a result, your mind becomes more
efficient at hiding it from your awareness while disrupting different areas of your life.

Do you suffer from compulsive eating habits, repeated physical injuries, panic attacks,
heart palpitations, insomnia, fatigue, low self-esteem, a lack of mental clarity,
self-sabotage, self-isolation, or toxic relationships? If you answered yes to three or more
of these symptoms and are a survivor, then we would really like to be there for you.

Healing Hands Counselling provides a unique approach to therapy

We understand how what happened to you makes it difficult to enjoy sexual pleasure, fear emotional intimacy and struggle to maintain healthy boundaries in relationships. We know that makes you more likely to suffer from burn out at work, emotional overwhelm, and a sense of powerlessness. My guess is deep down you know this already and that is why you are here. Healing Hands Counselling provides a unique approach to therapy. Our therapists provide a safe and supportive environment to help you heal your mind, body & soul connection. This is what has been interfered with when you were a child.

why choose us

We Always Ready For A Challenge

Sexual abuse in childhood leads to cognitive distortions, dysfunctional emotional responding and sometimes harmful behaviour. Due to stigmatization, lack of knowledge, shame, fear or traumatization- you may not have spoken to anyone about what has happened to you. This is ok. Our therapists are able to support you no matter where you are in your journey.

Adult survivors suffer in silence because they did not understand what was happening and were too traumatised to seek help, at the time. Due to the duration and severity of the abuse some survivors, will continue to need support throughout their lives. At Healing Hands Counselling we provide online therapy making it easier to get the help you need whenever and wherever you are*.

Why seek help now

Left untreated this manifest as physical symptoms such as tension headaches or psychological symptoms e.g. depression or complex issues with a partner or spouse, hyper sexualisation and difficulty establishing a healthy romantic relationship, anxiety and in women in need for dominating masculine energy

Women who have experienced sexual abuse as a child are:

More likely to develop a physical illness such as heart disease or high blood pressure (Springer 2007)
More likely to need healthcare services including support for low self-esteem or common mental health issues such as depression (Cannon 2010)
Increased danger of developing risky sexual behaviour, and substance abuse (Sachs-Ericsson 2009)

Having a therapeutic intervention such as counselling is life changing. It can help if you are physically isolated or find social situations too difficult to engage with right now.

The aim of counselling is to help you understand problematic thoughts, beliefs and behaviour so that you can function better. Having a safe and confidential space to unravel, blow off steam and gain some insight reduces the likelihood of a suicide attempt. It will also give you the necessary skills; for better communication and experience more sexual pleasure.

*We currently do not provide therapy for those living in the USA. If you are currently in an
abusive home and unable to speak confidentially at work or from a friends home, then
accessing an in-person services elsewhere could be the best option for you.
