A Message For Survivors In Therapy

For survivors of child abuse. Just a little note to those dreading their next appointment with their therapist. I was quite alarmed whist reading a couple of survivor's blogs. They were expressing their fear at their next appointments in which they knew they had to face and talk about an episode of abuse. What they were to talk about had obviously been planned for their next session. The amount of distress they were going through was overwhelming. I am just going to say this to them or you. You Are In Control, not the therapist, You Decide when and what to talk about. A good therapist should know that taking risks like this can only lead to more damage.

  1. Absolutely agree. There are standard safety practices which ensure you leave with minimal disturbance and have been given the skills to mange in between sessions. Definately wrong to cause distress @First do no harm'
