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.
