Emotional Abuse Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Columbia, MD

Emotional abuse is something that can happen to any person, at any time in their lives. Young children, teenagers and adults of all ages can suffer at the mercy of an emotional abuser. It’s a sad but true fact that so many let the abuse continue for years before they do something about it. There are others who never escape the clutches of their tormentor. Abuse can and often does have devastating consequences. There may not be any physical marks but there are plenty of deep, emotional wounds that cause pain and devastation in the lives of the victims.

Definitions of Psychological Abuse

The simplest way to define most forms of emotional abuse is any act that includes the following:

  • Confinement
  • Humiliation
  • Infatuation
  • Intimidation
  • Isolation
  • Verbal assault

These are just some or the common tactics used by an emotional abuser. Abuse of this kind includes any other treatment that aims to diminish a victim’s sense of identity, self-respect and self-worth. For many, emotional abuse therapy of some kind is their best hope for a lasting recovery.

The Effects of Long-Term Abuse

Any form of psychological abuse or chronic verbal aggression is going to have consequences. Those who endure emotional abuse almost always end up with low self-esteem. Over time they will show personality changes too and probably withdraw from society. Quite often, three of the biggest long-term outcomes of continual emotional abuse are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Suicidal tendencies

It is only once a victim has left their abuser that they can begin the recovery process. After admitting to the problem, breaking away from the situation is the last major hurdle. It’s the only thing that blocks the sufferer from their hopes of healing.
