Revival – Wiltshire RASAC offers free, confidential counselling and support for men and women who have been raped or sexually abused. It doesn't matter when or where. No one should suffer in silence. We are here to help survivors make sense of what's happened to them and begin to make life changing choices for themselves.
My journey started 20 years ago and now after 20 years and 2 years of talking to Revival I am able to say “I’m proud of myself” I know who I am now.
When I first came I was so confused and didn’t understand any of it, but now I understand it all.
I was sexually abused for 10 years of my life and I am not ashamed or scared to tell people now.
It’s part of me, part of my history, my life. I can’t change it and I don’t want to. Anyone can get through the bad times by trusting and believing in themselves.
My story is still not finished but it is coming to a happy ending. Be strong and you can feel as I do now, don’t be scared of it.
The long term effects of sexual violence can be difficult to come to terms with, whoever you are, but it is not something you need to do alone.
You may be experiencing some of the following effects:
Many survivors feel that what happened to them was a long time ago and they don't want to bring it all up again – but if it’s having an effect on your life, maybe it never really went away.
