Building a trusting relationship with someone who have experienced childhood trauma or abuse can be challenging. People who have been repeatedly hurt in interpersonal relationships have acquired a range of ways to guard against future harm. They are often vigilant, cautious, suspicious and/or angry and instinctively hide certain aspects of themselves and may mislead or block helpers from knowing them too soon. It takes time for survivors to feel safe enough to reveal their feelings honestly in therapy and develop a trusting relationship with the therapist.

Even though many survivors may want to talk to their therapist about their feelings, their shame as well as fear of the therapist's response stops them from doing so. Health professionals need to be patient with survivor clients, and willing to wait until the client feels ready to reveal painful material.
