We believe this keeps us safe from what we fear, but it can also have us feeling trapped in patterns that take a huge toll on our lives, health and relationships.

Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behaviour includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.

If you're looking for a counsellor that has treated clients who've experienced sexual abuse in Melbourne or for Melbourne sexual abuse counselling, these professionals provide confidential support for individuals in an abusive relationship. They include sexual abuse counsellors, sexual abuse psychologists and sexual abuse therapists. Counsellors can help with child abuse in Melbourne and sexual violence in Melbourne. An Melbourne counsellor can identify the signs and causes of sexual abuse, discuss intervention and refer victims to shelters.
