If you’ve just been sexually assaulted, the first thing to focus on is your own safety, both physically and emotionally.

Sexual abuse can affect your sense of sexuality and intimacy, but it doesn’t have to be like that forever.
You may be thinking about harming someone, or perhaps you’ve already done so. There is help available.
HELP counsellors are trained to work with adult women who have experienced trauma and understand the impacts trauma can have on a person, both immediately following an assault, and later on. Research shows that the sooner psychological intervention is provided for someone who has experienced trauma, the better their long term recovery is likely to be.
We can also provide referrals to counsellors that specialise in working with men.
