Sexual violence is a crime. It can happen to anyone of any age and includes child sexual abuse, child trafficking for sex, verbal (spoken or written), covert (without your knowledge), visual (exposed to unwanted sexual content), physical sexual abuse. It doesn't matter who commits it or where it happens. If you have been sexually violated, it is important to remember that it wasn't your fault. Don't be afraid to get help.
What is sexual assault?
Sexual assault is a form of sexual violence and includes rape (an assault involving penetration of the vagina, anus or mouth), or other sexual offences, such as groping, forced kissing, child sexual abuse, or the torture of a person in a sexual manner.
If someone has forced you into a sexual act against your will or carried on any sexual act without your active consent, then this constitutes sexual assault. This means you didn't agree to it.
As a victim of sexual assault, you may not have any physical injuries or signs of assault. Most sexual assaults are carried out by someone known to the victim. This could be a partner, former partner, relative, friend or colleague. The assault may happen in many places but is usually in the victim's home or the home of the perpetrator (the person carrying out the assault).
If you've been sexually assaulted, you may need time to think about what has happened to you. Talking about sexual assault might feel difficult at first. You might be afraid that no one will believe you. You may also feel as if you were to blame. It will take time for you to deal with your feelings and emotions. Counselling can help you to overcome feelings of anxiety, fear and panic.
I can help you by listening and facilitating you to process unhelpful feelings that may be causing your distress.
