Doncaster Rape & Sexual Abuse Counselling Service

Therapy for Children & Young People

People who have been sexually abused or raped can have different feelings or reactions to their situation. These might include, for example:

  • Having bad dreams or nightmares
  • Imagining that everyone knows what has happened
  • Feeling ugly or dirty
  • Having problems concentrating
  • Trying or wanting to hurt yourself
  • Feeling like running away
  • Feeling ashamed
  • Thinking it is your fault

It is quite natural to feel like this or to have other reactions.

If something has happened to you, then talking about things can help. Our trained therapists are here to listen to you; they won’t judge you, they won’t tell you what to do and they won’t give out any personal information if you don’t want them to (unless in exceptional circumstances). What they will do is try to help you explore your feelings and make positive decisions for yourself.

Before having counselling I felt lost and alone. Now I feel as though I’ve been listened to and have the strength to make decisions about my own future.
