Bullying – Counselors and Therapists in Greenville, SC

Have you ever been bullied, or do you know someone who has? For children in America today, bullying takes place on a daily basis. If a child is not currently being bullied, he or she has witnessed it. Studies indicate that approximated 20% of children have experienced the effects of bullying at some point in their lives.

Bullying comes in all forms – and it’s not limited to school-age children. Both children and adults can fall victim to the negative effects of bullying. Sadly, many people do not receive the help they need to overcome the lasting effects of bullying.

Types of Bullying:

There are several forms of bullying. Here are just a few examples:

  • Verbal bullying: name-calling, teasing, verbal threats, comments made about one’s appearance, or taunting
  • Physical bullying: pushing, tripping, hitting, threatening gestures, and taking one’s personal items
  • Social bullying: spreading rumors or telling lies about a person, intentionally leaving someone out of an activity, and publicly embarrassing or shaming another person
  • Cyberbullying: posting intimidating messages on social media or in chat rooms, sending harassing text messages, sharing hurtful photos or images of a person, or any use of electronic devices meant to embarrass or humiliate another person

Many schools, businesses, and organizations have instituted anti-bullying and bully prevention programs. Despite these initiatives, bullying continues to be a problem in our culture.

Emily Gilliam

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was...Read more

stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.

dn't see it myself. She helped me with my grief after losing my father. She helped me overcome my addictions with drugs and alcohol. She taught me to be kind to myself and that everyday is not gonna be an amazing day and that's okay. She helped me accept that I don't have to know the outcomes to big life changes that it's best to go with the flow, wear life like a loose garment. Emily is such and amazing counselor and I am forever grateful for everything she helped me see. Emily cares tremendously and I know deep in my heart she is gonna continue being the sunshine in many more client lives. Emily has made a huge impact on my life and I don't think I will ever find a counselor as down to earth as she is. Chicago misses you already!!! :) :) :)

ion. I thought I was handling it well until one day had a massive panic attack. I did my research and reached out to her immediately. She met with me the next day and helped my put a plan into place for recovery. The first time I met her, I knew I could trust her and she tailored my therapy and sessions to what I needed at the time and at each stage of progress. There were times I digressed and she helped me get back on track and we celebrated my small wins and progress together. I would recommend her to any friend or family member. I know personally, taking the first step to get help is an important one. I can confidently say she was a great first step for me and I know she's fantastic at helping others too.
