Service description:
At the Lighthouse Centre (NRICC) we offer counselling and support for anybody who has been sexually abused whether it was two weeks ago or 40 years ago. Sexual abuse and incest is sometimes hidden for many years due to a variety of reasons; the complex nature of emotions surrounding the abuse, shock, shame, embarrassment, disbelief, threats, humiliation, low self-esteem, guilt are just some amongst many of these reasons.

A person who has been sexually abused may be living in denial for many years or may even have blocked out the events, which is a protective response of the mind when incidents occur that it cannot deal with. The memories may only come back later in life due to a 'trigger' event.

We are also able to extend our support and counselling to the families and close friends of those who have suffered sexual abuse because it has a 'knock-on' effect to those closest to them.
