I have been sexually abused and I keep hearing people say that I need to get counseling. But I don’t see how counseling is going to help. It can’t make the things that happen to me untrue; counseling can’t unwrite history. Thinking about what happened makes life worse; I can’t imagine how talking about it to a stranger would feel. I want things to be better and would do counseling if I thought it would help. Can you tell me what I could expect and how counseling might benefit me?
