ACC counsellor for sensitive claims
ACC pays for counselling for those who have experienced sexual assault in New Zealand. It does not matter when it happened – the support is there for you when you’re ready to engage.
Each individual deals with abuse differently – it can cause anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares, difficulty with relationships or general feelings of not being safe. Sometimes a seemingly “small” event can trigger a response to previous abuse.
