Sexual Violence is the term given to a sexual act or activity that was not wanted and was not done under consent. There are many different kinds of sexual violence, and these include:
  • Rape
  • Sexual Assault
  • Child sexual abuse
  • Sexual harassment
  • Forced marriage
  • Trafficking
Sexual violence can be done by a complete stranger, or by someone known and even trusted, such as a friend, colleague or family member – anyone can commit the act. There is no way to justify for sexual violence and the blame lies with the person committing the act, with no exceptions.
It’s good to know that If you have been raped or experienced any other kind of sexual violence, no matter what happened, the fault is not yours.
 
Current legal definition of rape
On May 1st 2004, the Sexual Offences Act 2003 came into place, in order to protect those from sexual violence. The Act states that rape includes the penetration by a penis of the vagina, anus or mouth of another person.
Consent, within in the context of the offence of rape is now defined in the Sexual Offences Act 2003. A person consents if she or he agrees by choice, and has the freedom and capacity to make that choice. If not, then it is rape.
 
Current legal definition of sexual (indecent) assault
Sexual assault is the act of physical, psychological and/or emotional acts which are inflicted on someone without consent. It can involve forcing or manipulating someone to witness or participate in any sexual acts.











Hayley
Specialises in Abuse
Since joining You Call We Listen, online counselling Hayley has been helping clients with various abuse issues and has a great way of connecting to the source of the problems.
 Hayley has introduced Intuitive Counselling to our services and we have been overwhelmed with the results we are seeing with the clients.
As part of Hayley's theraphy with clients whether its traditional Counselling or Intuitive Counselling she believes it is important to be available for her clients in between scheduled sessions, as this keeps the determination of the client fresh and helps on those days where you need a little extra support but can not wait until your appointment, so as a result of your weekly counselling session you can have an add on of daily support by email or text.
How Constant Counselling works: 
Constant counselling is such a important part of clients recovery and is seriously under estimated especially for clients starting counselling.
The time inbetween counselling sessions takes all our strength to focus and stay on track with our recovery so an email, text or 5 minute phone call is vital for those times we need support to stay on track.
