Grey Matters Centre


Rape and sexual assaults are serious crimes that are against the law and can happen to anybody of any age, gender, race, religion or social position. We work with both men and women who have suffered these crimes at Grey Matters Centre.

If you have rape or a sexual assault in your history it is likely that it has been overwhelming and a serious trauma for you. Living with the aftermath can be devastating and extremely painful. 

For some people remembering any traumatic events of this kind is protected against at all costs. These costs can be a very high price to pay as they may include: disordered eating, alcohol use, drug use, zoning out, self harm, over working etc. 

Some symptoms may include

  • Feeling dirty
  • Feeling unsafe
  • Feeling powerless/vulnerable
  • Feeling isolated
  • Self blame
  • Shame/guilt
  • Nightmares
  • Flashbacks
  • PTSD
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trust issues
  • Relationship issues
  • Hyper-vigilance
