Do you cringe every time your partner says that? Are certain anniversaries and times of the year painful for you? Do you go to bed early and pretend you are asleep to avoid sex?

One in 20 children is being sexually abused in the UK today. Many of these children become adults that turn to drink, drugs or self-harming to take away the painful secret that they have been sexually abused. Some find it really difficult to have relationships on every level. Who can you trust? Even friendships can be difficult.

I am thankful to the media that the truth has come out about so many individuals and this being recognised and dealt with appropriately.

A lot of people are saying why have they waited until now? The reason is, they are older, they can cope with it better and they are sick of feeling the way they do, so they have taken action. Let’s deal with it and deal with it now!

By keeping a lid on things, the anxiety comes out in other ailments, Fibromyalgia, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, IBS, stress, depression, anxiety, addiction and low self-esteem.

Children that have been sexually abused become adult survivors. Hypnotherapy helps you deal with the past and move on to a fantastic bright future, moving you from survivor to thriver. You don’t have to face it alone. I will be there guiding you, nurturing you and keeping you safe. I cannot remove the past and change your memories but I can help you accept that none of it was your fault. It’s time to let go of the shame and the guilt and recognise that it doesn’t belong to you and definitely does not define you.

Stop suffering the demons of childhood sexual abuse in silence. More people are speaking out and there is no better time for you to let go of that wound and start healing and living your life to the full. Hypnotherapy can help guide and nurture you safely and effectively to be the person you want to be.
