Understanding your feelings as a parent

Coping with your own feelings when your child has been sexually assaulted can be difficult. You may experience a variety of emotions and feelings such as anger, frustration, sadness, guilt – all of which are understandable. It is important that you have adequate emotional support so that you can, in turn, support your child through this difficult time.

Our counsellors can work with you to try and make some sense of the feelings you are experiencing and help you come to terms with the emotional distress you maybe going through.
