This Weeks Featured Profile is
March 8th is International Women’s Day so our Featured Profile of the Week #FPoW is Survivors’ Network, based in Brighton.
“Even years later the triggers are there, whether it is the way that the material from my duvet touches my skin or the tone of voice that someone uses. The memories can come flooding back without warning. Support, being able to talk about something so personal that I had felt I had to keep to myself, having someone listen and really hear me has helped me to manage these moments in a way that has given me back a better quality of life. I’m stronger now and I will be forever grateful that I took the first step.”
Survivors’ Network knows that it takes a lot of courage to seek help for the effects of sexual abuse. There is no right or wrong way to feel afterwards and there is no fixed time for recovery. No-one ever asks to be raped or is responsible for their abuse in any way. They believe that with the right support you can heal from your experiences.
