Abuse is, sadly, more common in society than we would like to think. Statistics provided by the NSPCC suggest that around one in 14 children are physically abused. Numbers provided by The Lantern Project, an organisation that seeks to support the victims of child abuse, suggest that around a quarter of young adults have experienced sexual abuse in childhood. Refuge, an organisation that provides support for victims of domestic abuse, state that 2 women are killed each week in England and Wales by a current or former partner.

 

Whether you’ve been a victim of abuse in the past, or you’re wondering how to move on from an abusive relationship, it’s important to know that help is at hand. With the right support survivors of abuse are able to make a complete recovery and turn their experience into a powerful stepping-stone towards a better future, one in which you feel more confident and resilient than you ever thought possible.

 

 

 

 

DIFFERENT KINDS OF ABUSE

 

Abuse is generally classed under four main categories (though some individuals may have experienced multiple forms):

 

 

PHYSICAL ABUSE

 

Physical abuse involves acts of violence and intentional harm towards your physical body. It may include beating, burning, scratching, scarring, scolding, strangling, suffocating, and many other forms of physical harm. Many sufferers of physical abuse feel impelled to hide their scars to protect the abuser or because the abuser blames the victim for making them do it. Physical abuse may also include persistent threats of physical violence that are not necessarily followed through.

 

 

SEXUAL ABUSE

 

Sexual abuse involves the intentional transgression of personal boundaries, and violations of your body and genitalia. Sexual abuse can occur in childhood or within adult relationships. Sexual abuse, like all forms of abuse, often leads to complex feelings of guilt and shame that leave the victim feeling somehow responsible for the abuse. Abusers often manipulate victims in this way so as to prevent them from talking openly about their abuse.

 

 

PSYCHOLOGICAL OR EMOTIONAL ABUSE

 

Psychological abuse may involve such things as ‘mind games’ or outright bullying and verbal abuse. Victims of psychological abuse may feel uncertain and insecure. Often the abuser is drawn to manipulate and take advantage of individuals with pre-existing self-esteem issues. Abusers may be compulsive liars or cheaters, or individuals with obsessional or paranoid tendencies and a high desire for control. Psychological and emotional abuse may also involve threats of physical violence that are never fully enacted.

 

 

NEGLECT

 

Neglect is a complex and often subtle type of abuse that can take many forms. Some forms of neglect involve an extreme absence of care taking of vulnerable individuals. For example, children have basic needs that require an attentive and loving caregiver. In certain situations these needs are not met, leading to complications in the future for the recipient. In certain circumstances the abuse of neglect is intentional, and stems from mental health issue in the caregiver, in other cases the abuse occurs due to a basic lack of psychological or emotional resources on the part of the caregiver. In other words, the caregiver isn’t intentionally neglectful, they simply don’t know how to fulfil the role that they have created for themselves.

 

 

 

 

THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF ABUSE?

 

Unfortunately sufferers of abuse can experience a wide variety of symptoms and problems due the complex interpersonal nature of abuse. Experiences of abuse can be highly traumatising and leave a lasting impression on the recipient. Common issues experienced by abuse survivors (though aren't necessarily indicators of abuse in their own right) may include:

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE BENEFITS OF GETTING HELP FOR PAST ABUSE

 

One of the less talked about benefits of therapy, beyond resolving your previous abuse experiences, is that you walk away with a deeper level of self-insight, which enables you to feel more at peace with yourself and have better relationships with other people and the world around you. You feel like a better, stronger version of yourself, and you’re able to create a better life for yourself and the people around you. I’m sure you’ll see from the numerous verified reviews on my website that this isn’t just some shallow sales speak. Even though I’m in the business of therapy, I’m not the least bit interesting in selling you anything that won't benefit your life. My passion and joy comes from seeing real people make real transformations to their lives. I’m comfortable sharing with you that before I became a therapist I also needed some help in the past and it was hands-down the best thing I've ever done for myself. I aim for all my clients to walk away saying the same thing.

 

 

 

 

 

HELP IS AT HAND...

 

If you’re your seeking a professional therapist to help you overcome the effects of abuse and build a better future for yourself allow me to reassure you that help is at hand. One of the most rewarding things about my work is seeing people overcome the wounding experiences of the past and transform the course of their lives. Having successfully helped many recipients of abuse, both at my clinic in Bristol and through online therapy sessions via Skype or FaceTime, I warmly invite you to join me too for a FREE initial consultation so that we can discuss your needs in privacy and comfort.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION?

 

The initial consultation is a very relaxed and informal process that usually lasts around an hour. In the initial consultation we'll have a cup of tea or coffee and start by discussing what you are struggling with. I'll then ask you a few questions about your current life and background, as well as doing one or two quick questionnaires that will help me get to know you better. (Please rest assured that we won't have to discuss the particular details of your experiences at our first meeting if you are not comfortable with doing so.) We will then discuss your treatment options and talk through any worries or concerns you may have. Once we agree on a way forward we'll arrange a date from which to commence. You are of course under no obligation to commence treatment if it doesn't feel right. It's important that you find a therapist you feel comfortable with. The main aim of the initial consultation is to provide us with an opportunity ensure we are well suited to work together. I understand that therapy involves a considerable input of your time and money so I make every effort to ensure you have a rewarding experience.

 

 

 

 

HOW WILL YOU BE ABLE TO HELP?

 

Naturally most people don’t know what to do when things feel overwhelming or out of control. Because everybody's needs are different, over the years I developed a unique model for helping people that I refer to as Sequential Psychotherapy. Whether you're interested in a specific type of therapy such as hypnotherapy, cognitive therapy, analytical therapy, coherence therapy, or counselling, or you simply don't know what help you need, sequential psychotherapy draws on all these approaches to provide you with a map of what steps we can take to help you overcome your symptoms and improve your life. If, like most people, you're unsure of what therapy actually is and how it can help, or it all just seems a bit confusing and new, I made this easy-to-understand video to walk you through the basics...

Physical abuse may also include persistent threats of physical violence that are not necessarily followed through.

 

 

SEXUAL ABUSE

 

Sexual abuse involves the intentional transgression of personal boundaries, and violations of your body and genitalia. Sexual abuse can occur in childhood or within adult relationships. Sexual abuse, like all forms of abuse, often leads to complex feelings of guilt and shame that leave the victim feeling somehow responsible for the abuse. Abusers often manipulate victims in this way so as to prevent them from talking openly about their abuse.

 

 

PSYCHOLOGICAL OR EMOTIONAL ABUSE

 

Psychological abuse may involve such things as ‘mind games’ or outright bullying and verbal abuse. Victims of psychological abuse may feel uncertain and insecure. Often the abuser is drawn to manipulate and take advantage of individuals with pre-existing self-esteem issues. Abusers may be compulsive liars or cheaters, or individuals with obsessional or paranoid tendencies and a high desire for control. Psychological and emotional abuse may also involve threats of physical violence that are never fully enacted.

 

 

NEGLECT

 

Neglect is a complex and often subtle type of abuse that can take many forms. Some forms of neglect involve an extreme absence of care taking of vulnerable individuals. For example, children have basic needs that require an attentive and loving caregiver. In certain situations these needs are not met, leading to complications in the future for the recipient. In certain circumstances the abuse of neglect is intentional, and stems from mental health issue in the caregiver, in other cases the abuse occurs due to a basic lack of psychological or emotional resources on the part of the caregiver. In other words, the caregiver isn’t intentionally neglectful, they simply don’t know how to fulfil the role that they have created for themselves.

 

 

 

 

THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF ABUSE?

 

Unfortunately sufferers of abuse can experience a wide variety of symptoms and problems due the complex interpersonal nature of abuse. Experiences of abuse can be highly traumatising and leave a lasting impression on the recipient. Common issues experienced by abuse survivors (though aren't necessarily indicators of abuse in their own right) may include:

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE BENEFITS OF GETTING HELP FOR PAST ABUSE

 

One of the less talked about benefits of therapy, beyond resolving your previous abuse experiences, is that you walk away with a deeper level of self-insight, which enables you to feel more at peace with yourself and have better relationships with other people and the world around you. You feel like a better, stronger version of yourself, and you’re able to create a better life for yourself and the people around you. I’m sure you’ll see from the numerous verified reviews on my website that this isn’t just some shallow sales speak. Even though I’m in the business of therapy, I’m not the least bit interesting in selling you anything that won't benefit your life. My passion and joy comes from seeing real people make real transformations to their lives. I’m comfortable sharing with you that before I became a therapist I also needed some help in the past and it was hands-down the best thing I've ever done for myself. I aim for all my clients to walk away saying the same thing.

 

 

 

 

 

HELP IS AT HAND...

 

If you’re your seeking a professional therapist to help you overcome the effects of abuse and build a better future for yourself allow me to reassure you that help is at hand. One of the most rewarding things about my work is seeing people overcome the wounding experiences of the past and transform the course of their lives. Having successfully helped many recipients of abuse, both at my clinic in Bristol and through online therapy sessions via Skype or FaceTime, I warmly invite you to join me too for a FREE initial consultation so that we can discuss your needs in privacy and comfort.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION?

 

The initial consultation is a very relaxed and informal process that usually lasts around an hour. In the initial consultation we'll have a cup of tea or coffee and start by discussing what you are struggling with. I'll then ask you a few questions about your current life and background, as well as doing one or two quick questionnaires that will help me get to know you better. (Please rest assured that we won't have to discuss the particular details of your experiences at our first meeting if you are not comfortable with doing so.) We will then discuss your treatment options and talk through any worries or concerns you may have. Once we agree on a way forward we'll arrange a date from which to commence. You are of course under no obligation to commence treatment if it doesn't feel right. It's important that you find a therapist you feel comfortable with. The main aim of the initial consultation is to provide us with an opportunity ensure we are well suited to work together. I understand that therapy involves a considerable input of your time and money so I make every effort to ensure you have a rewarding experience.

 

 

 

 

HOW WILL YOU BE ABLE TO HELP?

 

Naturally most people don’t know what to do when things feel overwhelming or out of control. Because everybody's needs are different, over the years I developed a unique model for helping people that I refer to as Sequential Psychotherapy. Whether you're interested in a specific type of therapy such as hypnotherapy, cognitive therapy, analytical therapy, coherence therapy, or counselling, or you simply don't know what help you need, sequential psychotherapy draws on all these approaches to provide you with a map of what steps we can take to help you overcome your symptoms and improve your life. If, like most people, you're unsure of what therapy actually is and how it can help, or it all just seems a bit confusing and new, I made this easy-to-understand video to walk you through the basics...
