  • Yes! I was kidnapped and raped by a stranger when I was a young woman, and my therapist was such a gift and a blessing . . . I could never have healed my spirit alone.

  • Yes. I was raped 12 years ago and therapy really helped me get thru. I could not function without it for a while.

  • yes i've seen one, while i was in high school. it helped me to gain some closure for my past. it helped me tremendously. God used it to help me deal with things the way we are meant to deal with things.
    i was at my breaking point and needed and desperately wanted help with the issues i was dealing with.

  • I have been through counseling on numerous occasions. Counselors are like have to find the right fit. Usually counseling has been helpful to me, and I usually leave feeling more in control and more confident of myself. I like being allowed to talk through my troubles and come to my own conclusions and answers, though you kind of pay a lot of money to solve your own probelm in the end. LOL!

  • Yes & yes. When my ex and me split up we were in marriage counseling, next thing I knew he had run with our son and I was totally devastated of course. It took almost a month to find my son but even after that I was having issues which was normal. The therapist listened to everything I said about not understanding what I did wrong blah blah. She asked me why I felt I deserved such a crap man as a husband? It was like a light went on in my head. Totally helped. After that one day I never wanted anything to do with my ex again & I thought more of myself then to date scum.
