Episode 15 Therapy Q and A Part One

A survivor of child sexual abuse does a Question and Answer session as a part of a training weekend for Safeline counsellors and staff.

I have done several training sessions for Safeline, which are hosted by Meena Kumari of Hope Training.

I begin by sharing My Story, spoken. This is a shortened version of My Story, which you can read on this site.

The participants then ask me questions, which I do my best to answer.

The questions are read from the Chat by Liz, from Safeline.

The first question is, “What has been helpful or not helpful in therapy?”

Next is, Would it have helped if some of those pieces of the puzzle had been done earlier than others? Or do you feel the process of counselling followed a natural path?”

Next question is, “Do you have particular coping mechanisms that help or helped more than others?”

Liz also asks me to talk more about what I call, “my little ones”.

There are more Q and As in Episode 16.

You can listen to a podcast with Liz, “Getting Help

I wrote a poem called, “Flashbacks”.

You can find out more about DID, or Dissociative Identity Disorder on Carolyn Spring‘s website, which also has a huge amount of interesting and helpful stuff.

The journey to recovery from child sexual abuse or any other form of abuse or trauma, is long and painful. However you choose to find support and help on that journey, it is worth it. There is hope for recovery.

Thank you for listening.
