Dealing with Abuse
Abuse can take many different forms, emotional, physical, sexual, financial, neglect, child abuse, discrimination etc. Abuse is commonly associated with domestic violence, abusive relationships, childhood and can be found in both our personal and working lives. Any deliberate behaviour towards someone that causes harm or upset can be considered abuse.
Counselling can help in many ways, including helping the person to:
• Detach themselves from the abusive behaviour.
• Restore their self-esteem and re-examine healthy ways of relating.
• Resolve the issues associated with ending an abusive relationship.
