The need for proper psychological education on molestation, child sexual abuse and rape is huge in the world. The effect of any one of these on any child is unimaginable and has a direct impact on her/his life in every aspect of her/his life for the rest of their life until it is dealt with. I have found it to penetrate the home where this occurred, the school and post school career, the work arena, the relationship arena, the parenting arena, personal health, personal outlook and perception of self, and so on and so on. Many don't know or even think that it is possible to "BREAK FREE FROM THE CLOAK OF YOUR SEXUAL ABUSE".YES IT IS!! - WE DO IT ALL THE TIME!! IN A FEW HOURS YOU COULD BE FREE. JUST IMAGINE THAT. IMAGINE WHAT IT COULD MEAN TO BE FREE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. WHAT COULD YOU ACHIEVE, HOW WOULD YOU BE. ALL THIS FOR JUST A FEW HOURS. THIS IS THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT YOU CAN GIVE YOURSELF.

This site is designed to show survivors the impact on their life as well as some suggestions that could contribute to effect of breaking free and healing.

Defining molestation, Sexual Abuse and Rape - Back to Topics

  • Defining molestation, sexual abuse and rape

Break Free from your sexual abuse cloak and transform it into personal power – Many don't know that It can be done or has been done – We have done it for many using our unique methodology. It has always worked. It can work for you.!!!

For the survivor, Sexual Abuse is like a coat that you continually wear. You cant take it off and it never goes away ..... until you deal with it. You cannot ignore it, suppress it, drown it, drug it etc in what ever way you want to try to make it go away. It wont and does not.

Imagine BREAKING FREE of your sexual abuse cloak, in such a way that after every session, you leave feeling empowered and good about yourself. Imagine that even before you start with the sexual abuse SESSIONS, that FIRST of all, all your fears are addressed and you FEEL at ease about processing your sexual abuse. This is the methodology that I apply. It is unique and very powerful and empowering. In fact, it normally happens that when the survivor leaves us ultimately, they see the future as something positive and something to look forward to. Something to engage in. In other words they have now BROKEN FREE!!! and left their cloak behind. Imagine that !!! Not possible in a few hours??? Try US you will be surprised.

We don't mess around for endless number of open ended sessions. From start to finish is normally very quick for us. Add all of our hours together and you wont even get to a week. Worth it to try?? Workshops are even quicker. This is in complete contrast to conventional methodologies where therapy goes on and on (sometimes even years) and what's more most people leave the place of therapy feeling rather raw and exposed. This never happens when you work with us.

We have a holistic approach to this subject and try and address all the main areas of influence. Sexual Abuse impact on the survivor is normally deep and stretches across many areas in your life, and working with this therefore involves many areas to be addressed. That is why we have established a support group where many different subjects are discussed and processed. This is our commitment to address this scourge in our society. We try and rotate the subjects as much as possible.

This is probably one of the biggest most rewarding things that you can do for yourself - every survivor who leaves us agrees with this statement. When will you say this???

  • You should leave every session contained and able to cope – if not find someone who can do it
  • Joining a support group is an excellent idea – you discover that you are not nuts after all. Most importantly you learn from each other.
