Grey Matters Centre
If you are an adult and you suffered this type of abuse in childhood (CSA), we understand how difficult it can be to talk about it to someone. Please don’t suffer in silence as it is never too late to get the help you deserve and need.
It doesn’t matter how long ago it was, how many times it happened or who it was who abused you. We don’t need to go through details or re-live situations for you to heal. We work with your thoughts, feelings and beliefs.
Often people worry they won’t be believed or they think it’s their fault. We do believe you! And we know it is NEVER a child’s fault. We also know that reporting abuse is an adults responsibility and not a child’s.
We work on the detrimental effects it is having on you. How it impacts on your daily living, your relationships or perhaps your health. Whatever is causing you problems today.
1 in 4 children are reported to have suffered sexual abuse, we believe this number is so much higher. We are driven to deliver trauma-focused therapy to help you to heal and thrive.

How we can help
We offer an initial assessment which is an hour long, Within this in-depth discussion we will ask you about your presenting issues, your childhood and any other relevant history. We will also be asking you of the areas you want to work on and any goals you may have.
The treatment plan is tailored to each clients individual needs, with the aim of making life more stabilised on a day to day basis.Usually we work with feelings of safety, any problematic beliefs you may have, any triggers that are causing distress, how to identify and deal with emotions and any other issues that arise.
If you have decided the time is right for you to work on your trauma we can tailor this to your needs including using Eye Movement and Desensitisation Repressing (EMDR). If you don’t want to work on the trauma that is fine, you can always revisit that decision in the future if you decide you would like to.
Regardless of doing the trauma work or not, we can do so much work to enhance your life and help you with any other areas that are affected by your issues. We will also teach you tools and resources for the future so you can establish a full and lasting, sustainable recovery.
