Raleigh, NC Emotional Abuse Counseling – Therapy, Victims of Abuse

Emotional abuse can devastate the life of the victim when allowed to go on for too long. Some emotional abuse therapy experts say it can even be more damaging than physical abuse in a lot of cases. Psychological violence is a type of abuse that can negatively affect the way a person thinks, feels and functions. The emotional pain the sufferer experiences can often be unbearable to the point where they lose all hope. Here are just some of the destructive patterns of this cruel infliction:

  • Feelings of constant humiliation and degradation
  • Codependency
  • Emotionally distant or detached from other people
  • Simple everyday tasks become huge ordeals
  • Feeling of shame and lack of self-worth
  • And a lack of socialization skills

Any of the above distractions can alter the way a person gets to live their lives. The longer the emotional abuse goes on for, the more intense and embedded these defects become. Fortunately, you can get emotional abuse counseling at Thriveworks Counseling in Raleigh.

Lost Relationships

It’s hard to like or love someone who dislikes or loathes themselves. Such people are not easy to be around, and that’s the problem. It’s a sad fact that many victims of emotional abuse struggle with relationships at all levels, for example:

  • Personal relationships (family, partners and friends)
  • Work relationships (falling out with co-workers, gossiping)
  • People in authority (resents anything anyone in authority asks them to do).

Anyone who struggles to get along with other people struggles to get on with life. No one wants to be like this, but they don’t always know what to do to change. The deep scars of child emotional abuse can also carry over into adulthood when left undiagnosed and untreated.

Physical Problems of Abused Victims

A psychologically abusive relationship can also contribute toward physical problems. Some of these may include such things as:

  • Migraines and splitting headaches
  • Arthritis
  • Body aches and pains.

The body and brain is closely connected and when one is not doing too well it can have a negative knock-on effect to the other.
