In most relationships one person may be dominant or more forceful. But when the needs of one partner cannot be considered the relationship may become abusive. An abusive relationship is one where one or more of the following may be present: there may be threats of physical violence including suicide threats, someone controls your behaviour and restricts your freedom, criticism and put-downs are constant. Counsellors who may be able to assist you in providing sympathetic counselling are based in Central London, North London and Sandhurst.
Abusive relationships can develop gradually and can usually be identified by the patterns of behaviour featuring control and lack of respect for the other person as outlined above. These may surface slowly and be excused as jealousy or insecurity at first. Often they arise from an intense need for love and affection and can initially seem to enforce the victim’s worth. If you feel a counsellor with experience in abuse counselling may be able to help you address these difficulties we list counsellors in Barnet, Staines and Fulham.
Whatever the form of abuse that takes place, the effects can be far reaching and may cause feelings of confusion, depression and aggression. Physical abuse usually involves one person causing an injury to another through slapping, hitting, kicking or by the use of an object or weapon. Emotional abuse is another widespread but seldom-reported type of abuse. It includes behaviour such as verbal criticism, disapproval or intimidation intended to diminish an individual's feelings of self-confidence and self-worth. Counsellors who may be able to help you come to terms with your circumstances are based in Crouch End, London and Bristol.
Abuse counselling offers victims the chance to talk face-to-face, in a safe non-judgemental environment. Therapeutic approaches such as client-centred therapy may be suitable for people who have suffered abuse. This therapy aims to help the client come to terms with their emotional issues and realise their ability to take control of their lives. Strong emphasis is placed on personal empowerment.You may wish to contact counsellors who can assist you with making these positive changes in the areas of Islington, Queens Park and Muswell Hill.
Abuse is a general term used to describe the maltreatment of an individual by another person and it can effect anyone, male or female, old or young. Abuse counselling may offer a way of breaking free from an abusive relationship and provide hope for the future.
