Don’t Let Symptoms of Domestic Abuse Go Untreated – Therapists in Charlotte

Domestic abuse can have lifelong effects for those who don’t seek counseling. The initial feelings during or after abuse often include isolation, fear, anger, and embarrassment. Domestic abuse counseling can help you move past these feelings and through longer-term consequences as well.

You may not be aware of the extent of your symptoms

There’s no question that the actual abuse is painful and difficult but there can be symptoms you don’t recognize as part of the cycle of abuse. Victims often feel anxious and can even develop posttraumatic stress. Remember that these conditions can feel different than you expect. They could show themselves as chest pains, aches and pains, and sweating. They can mimic the symptoms you’d have if you were having a heart attack.

When to see your doctor and when to see a counselor

If you’re having chest pains or other pains that worry you, the right next move is to contact your physician. However, once they’ve ruled out a problem with your heart and have confirmed that you’re dealing with anxiety and / or panic disorders, then it’s time to speak to a counselor. There may be a medication that can help in the short-term but to move forward long-term, counseling is your best bet.

Other side effects of domestic abuse

There can be other side effects of domestic abuse including depression, suicidal thoughts, sexual issues, fear of emotional or physical intimacy, and a tendency to keep people in their life at arm’s distance. These symptoms can impact ever relationship in your life. They can make it hard to develop or maintain relationships with family, friends, and co-workers.

to go to for help with emotional regulation and understanding, grief management, and processing trauma in healthy and beneficial ways. Her use of meditation techniques to get to the root of my emotions and habits have helped me understand so much about myself and why I operate the way I do. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone just starting out looking for a good counselor, or anyone looking for a friendly empathetic professional who listens well and draws from a wealth of information to provide really quality services.
