Arpan understands the need for reaching out to adult survivors of child sexual abuse (CSA) in order to support them in an adequate manner and prevent any further re-victimization as well as enable them to heal from the impact of child sexual abuse.
Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment.
Adult survivors who were abused in childhood and did not receive any counselling or support at the time, face emotional, psychological, behavioural and physical disturbances later in the adult stage of life. In counselling sessions, adult survivors can talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and reliable environment. This service is offered at the Arpan office to help adult survivors come into a process of recovery and healing, address current challenges and move on in their lives feeling empowered and confident.
