Psychologist, Registered Clinical Psychologists - Dr Peter Gibbons and Adri Hunt
Adri Hunt specializes in this area and has worked at the Child Sexual Abuse unit at Anglicare and at SARC (as a trainee). Both Peter Gibbons and Adri Hunt have done extensive work in this area and as a team have discussed and worked out best ways to help clients to face the debilitating shame, confusion and developmental interruptions associated with the criminal and harmful actions of someone else or sexual abuse and confusion in partner relationships. The therapeutic process involves the client's own acting out behaviours or difficulties dealing with normal relationship and sexual needs.
Counsellor/Therapist, BASS, GDYMH, MSW
I have extensive experience working with people who have suffered sexual abusr/assault, & specialise in childhood sexual abuse. My person centered, strengths based & trauma informed practice helps me to create a safe & comfortable therapeutic environment & build a trusting relationship with individuals. This creates a healing environment & supports people to find a way to live with their trauma experiences. I often explain this work through the analogy of wound healing. Before one begins to work on past trauma, the memories are like an open wound. They are painful & have not healed. Through the process of counselling (I've found talking & narrative therapy to be very helpful for clients around these issues) the wound heals & becomes a scar. Whilst you can never remove it, the scar no longer hurts & is just a memory of the incident(s), a memory that no longer has the capacity to hurt.
