Sexual trauma is caused, when a child or an adult is forced, tricked, threatened, or manipulated into undesired sexual activity. Sexual abuse is the most common kind of sexual trauma, which undermines trust and adversely affects a healthy relationship.

Counselling is essential for sexual trauma survivors. Unfortunately, many sexual abuse young victims avoid help. Sexual trauma counselling in London Clinic has observed that the young sexually abused survivor’s display symptoms like

  • Exhibit numbing or anxious behaviour
  • Get hypersensitive and startled at sudden noises
  • Display a depressed characteristic like make no eye contact or never smile or have sleep or eat disorders
  • Use alcohol or drug to freeze their feelings
  • Kids can possibly become sexually pre-active because they are exposed to material prematurely
  • Act aggressively

For adolescent and children sexual trauma is very much upsetting. Each abused person’s experience is different and their response to it also is unique. Counselling can help these survivors to deal with the excruciating emotions that can pop up anytime or at any point in their life.

Sexual trauma therapy for adults

Adults experiencing sexual trauma suffer from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Sexual trauma counselling in London Clinics handle PTSD in several ways. They make use of four methods to address sexual abuse trauma.

  1. Stress inoculation training – The three phases included in this method are – education, skill-building and applying. Survivors learn about the reasons behind their terror and self-help strategies of managing these negative feelings.
  1. Prolonged exposure – Exposing traumatic memories repeatedly reduces the fear level of the experienced trauma. Ultimately, the survivor starts to feel less frightened with these memories and soon it is a thing of the past.
  1. Cognitive processing therapy – Counsellors deal with the traumatic experience through discussions. They even provide techniques to develop healthy feelings.
  1. Multiple channel confession therapy – The survivors are taught to detect their panic symptoms and encouraged to discuss their sexual trauma. Moreover, they are also made to understand that panic symptoms will never harm them.

Sexual trauma therapy for children

Trauma focused cognitive behavioural therapy or TF-CBT is regarded as the best treatment that will help the sex abuse survivors and their caretakers to address the sexual trauma effects. In this therapy, the survivors are trained to overcome their negative emotions and behavioural responses. The brain is compelled to adjust the feelings linked with trauma. The three goals attained using TF-CBT methods are given below.

  1. Reduce the negative response in terms of emotion and behaviour from the mind of the child suffering from sex abuse.
  1. Change wrong and unhelpful thinking associated with abuse like self-blaming for the cause of abuse.
  1. Provide coping skills to the guardians of the survivor.

Extending the Service Life of Elevators

Posted by Layla on February 14, 2017 (Comments Closed) as , , , ,

Safety requirements for elevators were first standardized by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (or ASME) in 1921. A17.1, A17.7 and A18.1 code publications are currently the most important requirements dealing with elevators. It is therefore a must to hire technicians who are also experts in these safety standards.

Thus, A17.1 is a popular safety standard concerning not only elevators, but also escalators, dumbwaiters, moving walks and material lifts. The publication sets guidelines regarding the design, construction, and installation of elevators and other conveyances. It also provides details on their testing, operation, inspection, maintenance, and repair.

A17.7 on the other hand, refers to the construction, maintenance, and repair of escalators and their associated rooms and hoistways, when these are located in a building or adjacent to it. Finally, A18.1 is the safety standard for platform lifts and stairway chairlifts intended for the transportation of people with disabilities.

Whatever your elevator repair needs, it is important to hire licensed and experienced technicians who are able to respond as soon as possible, even that same day if need be. Critical situations occur sometimes and being able to count on trained emergency response teams is reassuring.

Aside from customer satisfaction, a proven track record of safety is also essential for all repairs undertaken. Moreover, an elevator company that works closely with several suppliers makes for a quick turnaround.

Typical Florida elevator repairs include replacing the hydraulic cylinder, power unit, main valve, elevator door and door equipment, and motor. Services can also handle upgrades for cosmetic purposes, fixes for hydraulic pressure leaks, as well as any repairs deemed necessary after an inspection.

How long do elevators last

Properly and regularly maintained elevators typically last 20 to 25 years, when they are up for modernization, just like the rest of the building. After this time, one can see an increasing need for service and repairs, but modernization may also occur sooner, within the first 10 to 15 years if the elevator is not properly maintained.

Maintaining or extending the lifespan of your elevator means you can modernize your building when it is more convenient to you instead of having to pay a lot of money out of necessity.

In order to postpone the end of your elevator’s cost effective life, make sure to purchase equipment from a major OEM. However, bear in mind that only a handful of elevator companies are able to service original manufacturer equipment, and as a result, they may decide to raise their monthly maintenance fees.

If electrical switchgear is expected to last 50+ years, other types of equipment are less durable. Thus, the cab interior should be refurbished after a maximum of 15 years, while the elevator call station should be replaced after the same period of time.

The cables, car operating panel, shaft doors, controller and dispatcher need replacing after about 20 years. Somewhat more durable are the hydraulic piston, hoist rails, machinery and electrical wiring that have to be replaced (or in the case of the piston, resleeved) after 25 to 30 years.

Concealed Carry And the Basics

Posted by Layla on August 6, 2016 (Comments Closed) as , , ,

More and more people consider applying for a concealed carry weapon permit, and the number of women who do so is on the rise. It is therefore little wonder that a host of holstering and jewelry designed specifically for these women has appeared.

One of the most prominent examples is concealed carry purses that come with an exterior concealed compartment for easy reach of the gun. The pouch often features a lockable zipper that keeps children away from any danger.

Every woman who is interested in self-defense and concealed carry weapons should also get professional training that is tailored to her skills and needs. CCW courses are mandatory for getting a concealed carry license. Instructors and training must be N.R.A. certified, and often, the instructors who run these courses are former US Marine Corps.

The duration of CCW classes is either 8 hours or 10 hours, with the difference that the shorter one only covers the basics, while the longer one goes more in depth. The 8-hour class is enough to get your CCW license; however, consider taking the longer class since nothing is too much when it comes to learning everything you can in order to protect your life.

Course safety

Since your safety is the main concern for attending these courses, check that the training company ensures all of the following:

You should get a personal instructor, and have 1 on 1 range time. This is paramount, since there is always the risk that newbies can seriously injure themselves or others when left unattended.

Moreover, any indoor ranges must be EPA certified. If you can, choose an outdoor range though, as there are lower noise levels and no risk of the attendees getting contaminated with lead smoke.

The average cost of concealed carry courses is around $120, but if you sign up for classes with a group of friends, each of you may be able to get a discount. Note that an extra range fee may apply on the day of the range.

Aside from your own personal instructor, the price should cover your hearing and eye protection, free use of a gun and ammunition, as well as free target. Having the possibility of trying out a variety of guns free of charge is important for women in particular, who usually buy a weapon only after successfully completing their training class. This way, you will know which gun suits you best by the end of the course.

Appliances don’t last a lifetime, they can break down and you need to change them because it is time consuming and hard to do all this work on your own. One of the most important machines in our houses is the washing machine. It is an ordeal to do all the laundry by hand, so if it breaks down you have to replace it immediately. You can buy a new one, but if you are on a budget, don’t forget that you can always find a cheap washing machine for sale. But how can you find one really fast?


1.      Local web sites where everyone can sell what they don’t need any more in their houses

This is the newest way to find everything you need for a lower price. It is fast, easy and you can browse through a large variety of objects in a small period of time. Compare and analyze all the products people in your region are selling and arrange a meeting.

2.      Yard sales are always a good place for cheap purchases

This is one of the oldest ways to buy things for a lower price. People that don’t need some objects from their home sell them exactly in front of their houses. They don’t need to transport the heavy washing machines to specialized places to get rid of them, saving the money on transport, so they sell the objects cheap.

3.      Go the old way – newspapers

In the old days, people put ads in the newspaper if they wanted to sell something or to buy a specific object. This method really works and people still use it, so buy a newspaper and search if someone is selling what you need.
