Jigsaw Trauma Councelling
Rape & Sexual Violence

The main service we provide at Jigsaw is focussed upon the aftermath of rape and sexual violence, whether current or from childhood. Having worked in this field since 1996, much of our current work has become concentrated on self-help resources for those affected as well as the continued provision of face to face talking therapy and rape related post trauma intervention. For self-help books & CDs - please see self help resources page.

Over this time we have also witnessed the devastating effects of further secondary injury caused by those in the helping professions who lack the correct skills, knowledge or training. Being judged, blamed or dismissed by someone who has no idea of the trauma that person is going through can be and is devastating. An issue from which we regularly pick up the pieces.


Like metaphoric sunburn, the effects of rape and sexual violence are hidden below the surface. Whilst on the outside all is shiny and new, underneath, inside the person who is affected a deep smouldering burns through each day and each night as they try and make sense of what has happened to them.


Rape, sexual violation, sexual abuse, paedophilia and other such offences are not about the person who has been targeted – they are actions that have been perpetrated on that person. People must never be judged on what has happened or been done to them, not ever.

At Jigsaw you will always be listened to, in a safe, non clinical and comfortable setting where you can explore your inner most thoughts, feelings and fears as well as working with finding a way forward that suits you.


Jigsaw works in partnership with Lincolnshire Rape Crisis ~ together they are committed to ensuring that no girl or woman will go through a sexually violating attack whether as an adult or as a child without being treated with the respect and worth that they deserve.
