You don't have to recover alone.
While many of us think of abuse as physical, it can take many other forms such as psychological abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse as well. Abuse isn’t about being a victim; it’s about being a survivor. With counseling, not only can you build the confidence to remove yourself from negative situations and relationships but you can heal from the damage they have already caused.
Types of Abuse
Did you know?
It takes time to heal after abuse of any kind.
The intense emotions that you are left with after being the victim of abuse can remain with you for years to come. Ignoring an immediate abusive situation can pose a life-threatening risk. Failing to deal with abuse after you are out of an abusive relationship can also have risks, such as PTSD, depression, relationship issues, and behavioral problems.
Whether the abuse you endured occurred days ago or years ago, it can continue to affect you day after day. Continuously thinking about the abuse, constantly wondering if you are safe, and going through the details over and over again can make it difficult to go about your day. You might find it difficult to concentrate at school or work. You might avoid all social interactions which can make you feel even more isolated.
Abuse counseling can be the help you need.
