Domestic Violence Counseling – Counselors and Therapists in Peachtree City

Too often people who’ve been involved in domestic abuse don’t seek counseling because they believe myths about the process. We’re here to clear those myths up so you know what you can expect – and what not to expect.

Myth #1: Domestic abuse counseling involves reliving bad memories over and over again

For some clients, it’s helpful to discuss the specifics of their abuse. For others, doing so is simply revictimizing themselves over and over again. You can work closely with your counselor to come up with a treatment plan that will help you move forward – not get stuck in the past.

Myth #2: You must be out of the abusive relationship before seeking counseling

Not everyone handles trauma the same way. Not everyone is in a position to get out of a relationship. Your counselor is not here to pressure you into anything or make you feel bad about the decisions you’ve made. They can help you no matter where you are in your life and in the process of healing.

Myth #3: Domestic abuse counseling isn’t helpful

This is one of the most common and harmful myths about domestic abuse. Too often, people simply believe that time is all it takes to heal their wounds. The reality is that without help, there can be long-term consequences including both emotional and physical illnesses.

Myth #4: Physical abuse is the only type of abuse

Some victims of abuse believe that it really wasn’t “that bad” if their abuser didn’t physically strike them. The truth is that there are several types of abuse: physical, sexual, and emotional. They can all ruin lives and they all require assistance from a counselor to work through.
