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 Cave Spring 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 Cave Spring, VA can last for a few weeks, months, or longer, depending on the individual's exact needs and preferences.

Need more help deciding?

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 was very pleased with our first visit. My son is not the easiest child to get to open up and Christine was very good with him and knew how to communicate with him effectively.

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. Chris always demonstrated a sincere empathetic sensibility in his relationship with his clientele. He is keenly adept at providing the skills and guidance that allows others to pursue a self-actualizing understanding and awareness of themselves. He is a superb counselor.
