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

Thankful for Emily Gilliam!

Emily helped me out of one of my most scariest times in life. I was suffering from intense anxiety and depress...Read more

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.

I don’t write many reviews but this one is worth it. I found myself in a difficult and dark spot. A time in ...Read more

my life where in my mind, I had nowhere to turn. I reached out and I had never done this before. It was extremely difficult to say to myself, “I need someone to talk to.” Not knowing who or where that someone would be. And so, I was introduced to Emily Gilliam. A stranger, a therapist, a counselor. I don’t talk as it is, but Emily made it easy as I spilled my circumstances, actions, thoughts, and beliefs to Emily in a comfortable and secure setting. And for over a year, Emily and I were able to get through my darkness, my tough time, my thoughts, my situation. I would not be in my better place right now if it were not for Emily or people like Emily that are in her profession. Emily and people like her are needed and I’m am very happy that our paths crossed. And if you find yourself in a dark spot, a dark place in life, and you have the opportunity for your path to cross into Emily’s, you would be in a safe, secure, professional, space. I do thank her every day, even though she may not know it, or may not know how important she is and was to me and how her help, advice, thoughts, options, and opinions that she gave me got me through my darkness. So, if this review reaches one person and that one person has the opportunity and good fortune to meet and talk to Emily, I would be happy for that one person, as that person would meet an excellent stranger, therapist, counselor, and maybe a friend. Thanks again Emily, I wish nothing but the best, CB.

is exceptionally skilled at what she does, yet makes each session feel effortless. I could feel she truly cared for me. She taught me practical coping mechanisms while also helping me discover who I was and why I should love every part of myself. I highly recommend Emily Gilliam.
