Roanoke VA Emotional Abuse Counseling

Roanoke Counseling for Emotional Abuse

When we think of abuse, we almost always visualize physical maltreatment or physical harm; however, emotional abuse is actually far more common; but, unfortunately, it is far less detectible. Those who are emotionally abused in their lives are more than likely left untreated because emotional abuse brings with it feelings of shame and guilt which make seeking help very difficult. “No one would believe me anyway” or, “there must be a reason I deserve being treated this way” are often thoughts that flood the minds of the victims of emotional maltreatment. At Thriveworks Roanoke Counseling, we believe that those affected by emotional abuse really can live happy, fulfilling lives; and we hope to be the emotional abuse counselors that can help you to do just that.

The perpetrator of the abuse is often doing it in effort to control the victim by lowering their self-image. Often however, the abuse is actually a reflection of abuser’s own insecurities, and has nothing to do with the victim or the victim’s actions. Coming to understand this paradigm, however, is very difficult, and properly processing the negative effects of emotional abuse is even more difficult, especially when attempted on your own. Without processing the effects of abuse properly, the abused will soon become more and more dependent on the abuser. Below is a list of several methods abusers use to achieve their aim:

  • Intimidation
  • Bullying
  • Constant insults
  • Keeping the victim isolated from family and friends
  • Yelling
  • Complaining

You Can Break Free from the Chains of Abuse

Removing yourself from the abusive situation is an important step, but without processing the negative effects sustained during the abuse, the emotional distress can linger for a long time. We believe that not only can you be free from emotionally abusive situation, but you can also heal and move past the mental and emotional damage caused from the abuse. The best way to accomplish this monumental task is to partner with a professional, and Thriveworks Roanoke counselors for emotional abuse have been able to help many abuse victims reclaim control of their lives.

I had the pleasure of working with Chris in a professional capacity for 6 years, during which time he provided individual counseling for a number of children that I referred to him.

Review on Chris

★★★★★
If you are looking for a counselor who thinks deeply and can empathize with all your hang ups, you want Chris. He is low keyed, able to deal with clients of all educational levels, and is not into platitudes. Another point in Chris' favor: he really wants you to move forward in resolving your issues. He doesn't hang onto a client just for the money. I'm a fan!
