Charlotte Emotional Abuse Counseling

Emotional Abuse Therapy – Counselors and Coaches in Charlotte

Emotional abuse is an ugly and damaging ongoing form of psychological violence. If it goes on for too long and untreated, it can severely damage the victim. Mental maltreatment can take on many forms but it’s usually the result of persistent verbal bullying and gestures from the abuser.

There’s an old English proverb that parents like to recite to their children, used as a way to toughen the kids up. Well-intentioned parents try to persuade the child that name calling is harmless. They tell the kids to ignore the taunts and refrain from any physical retribution.

“Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

This may be true with one-off incidences, but it certainly doesn’t apply to ongoing emotional abuse.

Medium and Long Term Consequences of Emotional Abuse

The results of persistent emotional abuse are many, though some of the most common are:

  • Psychological trauma
  • Chronic anxiety
  • Chronic depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

In a lot of cases, over time the victim loses their self-concept and individuality. In cases like these, emotional abuse therapy may be the only way out; a path to a better life. Failure to get treatment might result in the victim withdrawing from society and living a life that is miserable and lacking.

Emotional Abuse Counseling

If you are a victim or have been the victim of emotional abuse, then you may benefit from mental abuse psychotherapy. There are certain patterns to look for that can help you identify emotional damage. For example, do you experience any of the following character defects?

  • Often feel wronged by others
  • Powerless
  • Fear
  • Anger

These are all signs that indicate therapy could be of potential help. If you find it hard to find satisfaction in anything, that too is a likely symptom from incessant abuse, either current or past.

The best way to find out whether therapy can be of benefit to you is to call our Charlotte Emotional Abuse Therapy Clinic and schedule an appointment. One of our qualified therapists can help to diagnose your current condition and suggest a way forward. For a lot of people, counseling can prove to be a great way to break any old, unhealthy patterns.

Thriveworks Counseling Charlotte

Great Counselor

★★★★★
I've worked with Mrs. Matson for close to a year now and I can say with certainty that she's a great counselor 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.

Good therapist

★★★★★
I have seen Dr. Daniel Stillwell for a year for individual and couples counseling and I trust him immensely. He is a skilled, authentic, and highly competent professional. I’ve also referred him to others and they described the same. Thriveworks staff have been very helpful with insurance and appointments.

Adriana Blanco is wonderful. I never felt any judgement from her during our sessions. She is compassionate, firm and extremely knowledgeable. I could not see myself opening up as much with another counselor, thank you for putting her in my path.

Not servicing patients

★☆☆☆☆
A place/facility that isn’t accepting any new patients. You rave about how you are here to help and treat people but really you aren’t at all. How is some one supposed to get help if you aren’t willing to help them. Very disappointed with Thriveworks and their lack of assisting.

For my son

★★★★☆
The service was fine. We came in for an evaluation for my son Bryant. Mrs. Hamel was professional and seemed to be able to talk with Bryant although his lips sometimes get in the way of being understood by others.
