"In trauma recovery the objective is for the past to become a very tiny part of your very large, confident, capable and free self."

-  Michele Rosenthal

ACC Covered Treatment Information:

ACC provides a special service to people that suffered sexual abuse that is fully funded through ACC.  As an ACC provider for Sensitive Claims I can offer this service to my clients. This service may also be eligible to you even if your current mental health concerns may not seem directly related to the original trauma. Even if you have never related the abuse before, or if it happened decades ago, or you are not even completely certain about all the details of the events, you still are eligible for cover. There is also no "need to prove" anything to ACC or anyone about the events in your life, rather this pathway is about finally finding solace through a hassle-free service.

Consequences of Sexual Trauma

The aftermath of trauma not only results in PTSD but can take on many forms. The following list is not exclusive but rather an orientation for those trying to understand what is happening to them:

  • Flashbacks and nightmares

  • Heightened alertness, irritability

  • Panic attacks and anxiety

  • Depression

  • Chronic pain

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • Difficulties trusting others 

  • Sense of being out of your body, or life as unreal, detached from your self or body
