Christian Counselling for Satanic Ritual Abuse
The good news is that victims of the various presentations of ritual abuse can recover fully and the model of counseling we use facilitates and fast tracks this healing process.
Over the years of working with people from various backgrounds we have become aware of the reality of Satanic Ritual Abuse.
Victims of Ritual abuse have experienced unimaginable trauma. It is not the scope of this website to go into too many details except to say that the we believe completely the experiences related to us by individuals we have counselled with this background.
We have heard similar accounts from clients who have never talked about it with anyone else, read a book or a website describing this practice. Disturbing themes echoed by each one, details they could not know if they had not in fact suffered through bizarre rituals.
Despite those who publish these trauma memories as False Memory Syndrome we believe the accounts of these clients to be real. The recounts of the trauma have the ring of truth and have been collaborated by other sources that the individual “remembering” has likely not encountered
We found this brave lady on you tube, her story is powerful and echoes the same themes of what we have heard in the counselling room
It is wonderful to be present when Jesus minister his healing work into this complex area of wounding. Most of these types of traumas only suraface when we are counselling for dissociation as the traumas are closely “guarded” by the alters that were formed as a result of the horrific abuse
Ritual abuse is a brutal form of abuse of children, adolescents, and adults, consisting of physical, sexual, and psychological abuse, and involving the use of rituals.
Many survivors state that they were ritually abused as part of satanic worship. Ritual abuse rarely consists of a single episode. It usually involves repeated abuse over an extended period of time.
Ritual abuse is usually carried out by members of a cult. The purpose of RA seems to be:
1) Rituals in some groups are part of a shared belief or worship system into which the victim is being indoctrinated;
2) Rituals are used to intimidate victims into silence;
3) Ritual elements (e.g.., devil worship, animal or human sacrifice) seem so unbelievable to those unfamiliar with these crimes that these elements detract from the credibility of the victims and make prosecution of the crimes very difficult.
4) The Kingdom of Darkness gains control and energy from the rituals
Ritual abuse is known to occur as an integral part of the life of some families in which one or both parents participate in conjunction with the extended family or other group. These groups are typically satanic in their symbols and beliefs. Children in these settings are severely abused on an ongoing basis with little time during which they are safe from abuse. The results are devastating.
Ritual abuse has also occurred, without parents knowing, at pre-schools, day-care centers, churches, summer camps, and at the hands of baby-sitters and neighbors. Ritual abuse of adolescents, and participation by adolescents in perpetrating ritual abuse, can take place in family or school settings, or in youth gangs which orient themselves toward a self-styled satanism or other ritualism, and violence.
Many adults who are victims and/or perpetrators of ritual abuse came under the influence of such beliefs and practices in their childhood or adolescence. Such adults are often working members of society whose identity as members of satanic or other cults is not known outside the cult. Some perpetrate abuse, infiltrate, and/or recruit for the cult in the context of their jobs. Some dissociative adult victims are not even aware that they are living a dual life. Some adults join the some coven variants later in life, enticed by sexual promiscuity and perversion, the availability of illicit drugs, the promise of money, and the satanic spirituality oriented toward power and moral license.
