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

The only reason why my Family stopped going to see Ms. Dowdell is because I had to change jobs and at the time...Read more

my schedule would not allow us to continue services. She made sure my Family had a great transition to another Provider and that we had continuity of care. Now that my schedule has a little more flexibility, I am very thankful to be able to continue services with Ms. Dowdell who still remembers my Family’s history like we were just in her office yesterday (over 1 year ago)! She listens intently and never puts you down, and helps you understand your emotions and what issues and problems you may be going through in a way that you can understand but clearly. Personally, I deal with a lot of stress and being pulled in a lot of directions, and would when I felt as though my words did not make sense coming out of my mouth, she would know how to piece together what I was saying and not make me feel bad for being too vulnerable and made my therapy sessions a safe space to learn and grow from them. I am forever grateful for how she is helping my Family accept what we need to accept, change what we need to change, and heal from the root of our wounds; wounds I did not know were there. I highly recommend her.

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.
