Need more help deciding?

Emotional abuse, also called psychological abuse, is any type of abusive, verbal behavior targeted at one individual by another. This is a type of abuse that promotes a destructive sense of fear, obligation and/or guilt in its victims. Quite often this type of maltreatment occurs over time—years in some cases. Because of this, the victim often doesn’t know they’re a victim of abuse because they just know it as normal life behind closed doors. But it’s not normal, and it’s not okay. Typical examples of emotional abuse include the following:

  • Alienation
  • Blaming
  • Bullying
  • Emotional blackmail
  • Gaslighting
  • False accusations
  • Harassment
  • Intimidation
  • Name-calling
  • Raging
  • Threats

Those who escape from the oppression of this awful behavior often need emotional abuse therapy sessions to help rebuild their lives. The licensed counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can help people recover their self-esteem and their inner strength after they’ve been abused.

Difference Between Physical Abuse and Emotional Abuse

Emotional abuse is different from physical abuse, obviously, but it can sometimes be more hurtful in the long run. Any physical damage can heal itself within a relatively short space of time. This is not the case with emotional scars, many of which can embed into the victim’s psyche and torment them for years–or even a lifetime in some cases.

Emotionally abused victims spend a lot of their time “walking on eggshells” around the abuser. They’re in a constant state of hypervigilance and anxiety, sometimes afraid to speak. Here are a few of the other struggles a victim may face on a daily basis:

  • Constantly on their “best” behavior around the abuser
  • Unable to relax or enjoy anything when the abuser is around
  • Always anticipating the worst
  • Always waiting for the next outburst to happen
  • Blame themselves for the abuser’s bad moods
  • Lost hope of living a peaceful, contented life

This is no way to live, yet tens of thousands of people do exist in this way on a daily basis. A compassionate emotional abuse therapist at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can help victims see how they deserve to be treated.
