Emotional Abuse Counseling in Knoxville, TN

Emotional abuse can manifest in many ways, though all forms of this abuse share certain things in common: it is all painful; it’s destructive and has a lasting effect on the victims. Emotional maltreatment is by far the most common form of abuse. Although an abuser will use various kinds of psychological warfare to torment their victim, there are some common actions that most use. Some of these will include:

  • Making fun of your looks and body
  • Constantly mocking your thoughts and ideas
  • Drawing attention to your flaws and often use them against you
  • Humiliate you in public
  • Shout and scream at you, often from close quarters
  • Make a point of putting you down in front of other people

This type of abuse is inexcusable and truly awful, but it is all too common nonetheless. If you can relate to any of the above, just know that it’s not normal or acceptable behavior. It is advisable for anyone going through any of the above to talk to someone. That someone should preferably be a trusted emotional abuse therapy counselor or therapist.

Thoughts and Feelings Affect Life

The way we think affects the way we feel and the way we feel affects the way we function as individuals. Thoughts and feelings affect life. People who suffer with emotional abuse are unable to think, feel or function in the same way as others do. They struggle. Psychological abuse can affect three main areas of everyday life, namely:

  • Home life
  • Work life
  • Social life

Abuse has a detrimental impact on all areas of living. Socialization skills often go first. This affects friendships and the way the abused one communicates with other people. Productively at home and in the workplace declines too. The longer the abuse goes on for, the more psychological damage there is.
