It hurts so much to be writing this because i have been wanting to contact childline for so long now about a problem i have and something happened last night which made me make the final decision to get in touch with childline.
I was nervous but the chat was going well and i went on to explain what happened. the counsellor seemed empathetic and caring. i explained that someone had put their hands around my throat last night and all was going well until the counsellor tried to pin the blame on me, thats how i read it anyway..
they said ‘im wondering if the ’person’ knew that they was hurting you, did you tell them to stop or get off and did you tell them that it hurt”
and so to that i replied ‘it wasnt a game, why should i have had to say stop when their hands shouldnt of been there in the first place‘
the counsellor then went on to say ‘i know it wasnt a game im just wondering if ‘the person’ knew that they were hurting you‘
I dont mean to complain and be picky but OBVIOUSLY the person knew that it hurt when they had their hands holding my neck tightly. They were CLEARLY trying to cause pain and i was scared.
maybe im reading it wrong but it sounds as if counsellor is saying that i should of said stop. even if i had they probably wouldnt have stopped. Not that i should have ever been in that situation to begin with. I feel hurt, wont be using the service again sadly. big let down and now have no where to turn.
