Our Sexual Abuse Therapy Offerings
“Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives”. – Akshay Dubey
Our healing programs begin with supporting a survivor to rebuild themselves on solid foundations such as self-love and purpose. We focus on developing a healthy mindset and lifestyle to increase confidence, independence and healing from childhood sexual abuse.
Empowered Survivors Support Groups
Our separate mens and womens support groups provide a safe space where social interactions and positive discussions are encouraged to support healing from childhood sexual trauma.
These groups are a space to both receive and give support. Knowing you are not alone is a vital part of the healing process for many people.

Mentoring, Counselling & Therapy Sessions
Delivered directly by Meant To Rise, our experienced mentors and qualified counsellors assist with healing from childhood sexual abuse.
All our staff and volunteers provide free support that genuinely honours you as a survivor and encourages you to choose the path to healing that feels right to you.
In addition to counselling and mentoring we are also able to provide holistic support for healing including Reiki. Reiki is non-invasive and works with energy to bring the body back to balance and harmony so that it can then begin to heal itself. Benefits vary and can affect persons in the physical, mental, emotional, and or spiritual domains. Some have experienced a sense of calm to their overactive mind, mental clarity, increased energy, restful sleep, easing of aches and pains and more.
A beautiful, relaxing treatment provided as an optional add-on, Reiki can assist with anxiety and rebuilding trust or a feeling of safety.

The program is broken down into workshops that are a combination of group work, mentoring and counselling. It will include yoga, meditation, reiki/energy balancing work, expressive arts, somatic and sensory approaches. What you take from it all will depend on your place in your own journey.
