Psychotherapy can be immensely beneficial for survivors of sexual abuse by providing them with a safe and supportive environment to heal, recover, and regain control over their lives. A skilled and compassionate therapist can tailor his or her approach to meet the specific needs and goals of the survivor, fostering healing, growth, and resilience in their recovery process.
