Contains sexual abuse - support groups
Hi, i dont post in this forum very often but im looking for a bit of advice. Ive been seeing a counsellor at relate for a while now and a couple of weeks ago i finally told her that i was r***d. Its been really difficult to talk about but im quite proud that after 7 and a half years ive finally told someone.
Anyway, basically after the things ive been talking about she suggested that it might be good for me to go to some sort of r*** survivors support group to listen to others stories so that i cansee that how i reacted to the situation wasnt wrong or wasnt stupid or whatever. She thinks it would help and said i didnt have to say anything i could just go and listen. So shes sent me of with this task and ive been looking on the internet and i cant find any kind of support group. It is all counselling which im having already and dont need, i dont want to talk to anyone else about what happenened at all so i guess im just looking for any information any one has on this kind of group. Kind of like an AA group but for r*** or sexual abuse. Does anyone know of any? anywhere in the country would be a start but in the nottingham area would be better.
The only thing ive found is the nottingham rape crisis centre but i cant really see what theit services are without ringing them and that is making me very anxious and i dont think i canring.
Any help would be great, thank you!
