Online Counseling for Emotional Abuse
While physical and verbal abuse are often considered the most insidious forms of abuse, it’s important to note that emotional abuse can be just as traumatizing for victims. Inflicted by family members (spouses, mothers, fathers, siblings, cousins, uncles, aunts, daughters, sons, etc.), friends, and even strangers in some cases (cyberbullies, etc.), emotional abuse can take a toll on an individual’s mental health..
Over time, the person may start second-guessing themselves. They may wonder whether they are worthy of the abuse. This extent of self-doubt and self-hatred is triggered when the perpetrator of the abuse continually brings the victim down through their words and actions. They emotionally hurt, manipulate, gaslight, and torment the victim. As they play mind games with them, the perpetrator feels a sense of power and satisfaction that pushes them to inflict greater emotional abuse on the victim. Hence, the cycle of abuse begins.
At Calming Streams Online Counseling, we understand how damaging emotional abuse can be for the victim’s self-esteem, self-confidence, and sense of self-respect. They may lose themselves along the way and become emotionally frail and decrepit. Our job is to steadily undo the damage.
Our empathetic counselors work closely with victims to help them heal. We start by helping them understand that they did not deserve the abuse that was hurled at them. In many cases, victims of emotional abuse begin to think they did something wrong that put them in such a vile situation. In actuality, the onus is 100% on the perpetrator. By helping victims absolve themselves of any blame, guilt, or shame, we make it easier for them to embrace the healing process.
