What’s important to remember is that if you are struggling with emotional abuse, you are not alone. Help is out there for you to cope with the feelings, reactions, and side effects that come along with emotional abuse. Our trained team of licensed therapists and counselors is ready to help you manage these feelings and work toward healing emotionally.
Not all types of abuse in a relationship are violent; instead, many will experience what is known as emotional abuse. While no two relationships are the same, there are many common behaviors that characterize emotional abuse. If you find yourself in a relationship in which your partner criticizes you, calls you names, acts jealous or possessive, isolates you from friends or family, or attempts to control what you do, say, wear, or who you speak to, this can be an indicator that you are experiencing emotional abuse.
Common symptoms or side effects of emotional abuse include:
Over time, individuals who have experienced emotional abuse can struggle in finding self-worth and self-confidence, and it can be difficult to establish trust or form meaningful relationships with others. By working with an emotional abuse counselor, you can process these aftereffects of emotional abuse, and work together on a path toward healing and regaining a sense of self.
If you are currently experiencing emotional abuse or have experienced it in the past, help is available to you, and it’s never too late to seek the treatment you need. By working with the trained emotional abuse counselors at REACH Behavioral Health, you can not only arm yourself with the tools needed to cope with the effects of emotional abuse, but can also work toward treating emotional trauma, mental health disorders, or substance abuse issues that may arise as an effect of emotional abuse.
If you are unable to seek the help of an emotional abuse therapist in person, or would prefer a more convenient and flexible option, REACH also offers teletherapy options. Telehealth counseling services are conducted in the same secure and supportive manner as in-person treatment, only over the phone or via video call.
If you are experiencing emotional abuse, you don’t have to go through it alone. Remember that assistance is out there, and the trained therapists at REACH are on hand to help you in a safe and supportive environment.
