Dealing with Domestic Violence? Learn What You Can Do About It – Therapists in Chesterfield

Being the victim of domestic abuse can make a person feel powerless. They often feel that they have no control over their lives. The good news is that by engaging in comprehensive counseling, you can take control back and finally deal with the abuse head on. You don’t have to live with fear. You don’t have to live with pain. There is help out there.

There is more than one type of abuse

Too often people believe that domestic violence only refers to a man beating his wife. The truth is that both men and women can be the victim of domestic abuse. It’s also true that it doesn’t always involved physical violence. It can involve sexual violence, sexual abuse, or emotional abuse and control.

Help is essential for a number of reasons

While getting out of an abuse situation may be one of the first steps, it’s not the only thing necessary to heal. Long-term effects of abuse can be significant and permanent without help from a counselor. They can include suicidal thoughts, depression, insomnia, and anxiety.

You can heal from domestic abuse

No matter how hopeless you feel, no matter how scared you feel, no matter where you are today, there is hope for you. Without counseling you may be afraid of intimacy for years. You may keep an emotional distance and be unable to get close to people or trust them. Sexual issues may haunt you. Even physical symptoms like aches and pains, digestive issues, and headaches can be symptoms.

Getting help doesn’t have to be scary

It’s normal to feel apprehension about getting help – everyone does. It may put your mind at ease to know that your counselor is not going to dictate to you what you must do. They will listen to you. They may offer suggestions. They have provide solutions to problems you’re having. But there will be no pressure. The ultimate goal is your safety and you get to set the boundaries for that.

At Thriveworks Chesterfield Counseling & Coaching we’re here to help you heal. Call us today and let us walk you through the process.
