Surviving abuse

Some people who have experienced abuse can’t ask for help, and it is just to big a step to take, they keep it to themselves hidden from friends and family, maybe the emotional trauma, anxiety, or feelings of shame make it almost impossible for them to talk about what happened. Perhaps the time has to feel right before they can start to open up about the abuse, or they need the passing of time to dull the emotions first before seeking support. Not forgetting the people who have built up the courage and seek help only to be rejected or ignored by friends family the police, even professional therapists can mismanage it, leaving them feeling rejected, they may feel betrayed belittled and can stop seeking help altogether. The road to recovery from experiencing any combination of abuse can be a challenging personal experience to deal with, even taking the first step toward finding help and support can be a very tough and scary experience to undertake. Sound only online therapy sessions can help by reducing the anxiety involved by remaining hidden from view so feeling less exposed in comparison to attending a face to face session or using a video camera. The effects of being abused will vary considerably from person to person. What is certain is that many people keep their abuse a secret and are not able to get the emotional support they need, year after year they manage to dope cope and survive, and continue dealing with the emotional pain in the best way they can day after day. The good news is that once they take a step and start to talk about the abuse they have suffered or are suffering, they can begin the healing process. One of the first changes is to renegotiate the label of being a victim of abuse and becoming a survivor of being abused, when they can this is often an essential personal distinction that signals recognition of what has happened is in the past, and now is the time for healing, a new phase of life has started. People can find it a real struggle to deal with the emotional trauma and professional help is often needed to challenge the negative thoughts and emotions, feelings of guilt and shame that often arise after someone has experienced sexual physically or emotional abuse. It can be challenging to deal with, but also it is entirely possible to eventually find emotional healing with talking therapies either face to face with a therapist or utilising online therapy services.

Recovery

The impact on the lives of people who have experienced abuse can vary from person to person; unfortunately, there is no simple guide or official timeline for recovery, and there is no pill that can cure the repercussions of experiencing trauma and abuse in life. For some people, it is not always about recovering from emotional and physical injury but trying to find a better way of coping with life one day at a time, until either time numbs the emotional pain or they can in the future start to diminish the emotional hurt and pain with counselling or psychotherapy. With this online counselling service, it may be possible to find a way forward, by working through difficult personal experiences and emotional pain within a supportive compassionate and confidential therapeutic environment. Personal growth often comes from the knowledge we gain through understanding our emotional world, this can be difficult to do, but with therapy, it can change from just coping at to eventually having a better quality of life. Unfortunately, when dealing with life-changing events, it can also be about coming to terms with the knowledge that life will never be the same again. On the bright side, people often do find a way of recovering from traumatic life experience, and they can live a fulfilling life even if that means adjusting to a life that is never going to be the same as it was. Dealing with the physical and emotional after-effects can be traumatising by itself, and dealing with the complex thoughts feelings and memories in therapy can be emotionally draining and sometimes extremely difficult.
