First see if you can gain help by contacting an organization for that and speaking to an advocate.
As a therapist, I can tell you that there are many therapists in the field who are survivors of many kinds of abuse. I believe that is part of what makes us who we are. There is no type of therapy in this field that will hold anything against you for being a survivor or being in therapy. We promote therapy! That doesn't make you weak. It shows that you can face your problems head on. You may even want to specialize in the abuse area. People in our field will congratulate you on one being a therapist and two seeking guidance. You can tell other patients I know what you are going through.
I think you are in the perfect field to promote the ability to be a survivor of trauma. Other people need to hear that. Never apologize for your history. You have overcome that. I have a saying: I am who I am not because of my history but in spite of it. You want to think of it this way so that you never forget that everything goes into being you. You will find no obstacles in this field.
