Our expert says:
Hope things get still better for you, k. OK, so your counsellor is handy on eating disorders. A I recall, experiencs of rape / abuse are not at all uncommon in people with eating disorders, so she is probably well able to help with that aspect of your problems, too. And the basic skills of a really good counsellor can be applied to any problems.
I am really pleased to hear you being so rational and working towards normality.
As for approaching your counsellor on this, maybe you just need to be absolutely frink to her --- how you recognize her expertise on teating disorders, but, that, for whatever reason, you felt that she just listened when you told her about the rape, while you feel that it has affected you far more deeply than perhaps she realized, and that you need more help specifically dealing with that, and the pain and rage it has left you with. Tell her in more detail about how it has affected you, and the instabilities that arose, and ask her to deal directly with those issues. Surely she will rise to the occasion, or perhaps even consider involving a colleague with even more experience in such matters.
