Starting Emotional abuse counseling

What is Emotional abuse counseling?

Emotional abuse counseling helps victims heal from abusive relationships. Emotional abuse includes Examples of emotional abuse may include:

  • Blaming others for their own behavior.
  • Publicly mocking, humiliating, name-calling, embarrassing, criticizing.
  • Separating someone from their family and friends.
  • Withholding affection or love.
  • Downplaying another person’s experiences, perspectives, emotions, or thoughts.
  • Using or objectifying people.
  • Denying access to money, medical care, food, transportation, or other crucial resources.
  • Using guilt, threats, or intimidation.

How does Emotional abuse counseling work?

Emotional abuse counseling with our Thriveworks therapists in Raleigh gives people the safe space they need to identify and understand the harm they've experienced and move forward. Through therapy, many victims have rebuilt their self-esteem and self-worth; recognized that they did not cause the abuse, but their perpetrator is responsible for the choice to harm; identified their wounds and found the treatment they need; healed from the trauma; re-established their personal safety; grieved their losses; formed new, loving relationships; and learned to trust their experiences and emotions.

Is Emotional abuse counseling conducted in person or online?

Emotional abuse counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Emotional abuse counseling last?

Emotional abuse counseling with one of our Thriveworks therapists in Raleigh, NC can last for a few weeks, months, or longer, depending on the individual's exact needs and preferences.

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 of the destructive effects include:

  • 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.

Had bad fall last year and I was feeling sad, depressed and angry cuz now I couldn't go to see my auntie mom like I was doing two or three times a year.  Now I have to be home I broke my wrist in two places now I have doctors and doctors and doctors and x-rays and all this other stuff going on and I felt like I didn't have my life, didn't have a life right then and I know I would get better but it was taking too long so that was infecting me mentally and so I found the Thriveworks card at my pain doctors office and I gave him a call and immediately they set me up with an appointment.  I've had three or four appointments now.  I'm starting to feel better because I live by myself, I'm 71, and I needed someone to talk to so y'all set me up with a very nice lady.  I learned out to do Zoom and a couple meetings of course, but I'm feeling better  as time goes on.  I still have to have another surgery but at least I'm closer to being able to traveling again right now I can even walk a half a block so thank you Thriveworks for being there for me.  I don't know how ling I need you but I'm glad you're there.  My person is kind to start phone she allows me to talk, she gives me feedback, and I'm just so grateful to have had her during this holiday as well so I've also recommended a couple other people to try Thriveworks right at my doctor's office and they seem interested.  Thank you Thriveworks

I have known Mrs. Ashley Barber-Brown for 18 years now and I can honestly say that she is truly an amazing person. Besides her strong will to work hard and take care of her family, Ashley is also compassionate and undoubtedly dedicated to making sure that she helps others. Her selflessness, loyalty and authentic personality are just some of the many attributes that I admire about her.
