Many people – female, male or sex and/or gender diverse – suffer sexual assault.
This can happen to you as an adult or in childhood including rape, date rape, inappropriate sexual contact, incest, ravishment, non-consensual or coerced exposure to pornography, co-erced sexual encounters, sexual harassment or being a witness to sexual assault.
The definition of sexual assault can be clarified as experiencing a sexual encounter without your permission or when you are incapable of making a rational informed decision.
• The trauma experienced from the assault can be immediate or it can progressively destabilise your sense of wellbeing, hours, months or even years later.
• You may suffer the immediate effects or you may try to bury the memories, sometimes telling no one, and then decades latter those memories flood back into your conscious mind uncontrollably and unexpectedly as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
• You may even experience a false sense of guilt about what happened and have suicidal thoughts and panic attacks, anxiety and depression.
• In more serious cases you may have developed a dissociation disorder or borderline personality disorder due to the trauma.
Hypnotherapy is one of the fastest ways to help you gain back your sense of self-control
