Are you personally looking for help? Or just asking?

I assume they just talk to you and use physiological techniques to help you feel better

Rape is bound to have a very traumatic effect, emotionally. Therapy can help them to address the incident and get over it. Also, any issues like building up courage or helping them trust others again. Anything like that, really.

Physiological? How exactly would that work then, it’s just something I researched but no where is giving me an explanation

You should also take legal action, by reporting the person to the police or something.

Get over it? Just like that? Surely not

I think they meant psychological - it could just be a typo.
But there is also physiological damage. They could've been hurt in the incident, leaving bruises or even broken bones.

And no, it's never just like that. Therapy is personal, and could take many years to work - but the progression you get from therapy is much better than doing nothing. If you want you can Google accounts of individuals who have been through this, and read what helped them and that eventually, they do see the end of it.

Where is the link of the google accounts?

I'm by no means an expert and physiological might have been the wrong word chosen (I don't even really know what it means) But what I mean is that they can easily relate to a range of circumstances and have good emotional understanding, allowing them to easily communicate with you to ensure you feel safe and to minimize any mental effects of crime. You seem very interested in this, so if it is you then I would really advise you to tell a doctor or do whatever is necessary to receive the help you deserve.

But what exactly would emotional understanding do?

It still wouldn’t be forgotten.

When it says 'Specialist Emotional Support' in the link, it means support from counsellors who have trained and have expertise in supporting people who have been raped.

Ok so they talk to you? Right?
How is this going to make me forget. Sure it’s better than nothing but it seems like a waste of time if they’re still going to feel like crap?

If this is something you have experienced yourself, do seek help.
