Abuse Therapy

When we hear the word ‘abuse’, we usually think of a person who is being subjected to physical harm when in fact, there are many, many forms of abuse – some of which may be self-inflicted. Anyone can be abused, and anyone can be an abuser. Some people may not even realize they are being abused or that they are the ones doing the abusing. It has become a way of life for them – it’s all they know. Abuse is prevalent in families and marriages, but it can happen outside this realm as well.

A person does not have to be related to you to be an abuser. Teachers, preachers, employers, friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, and even best friends can all be abusers. We are here to tell you that abuse, in any form, is not acceptable, that you don’t have to tolerate it and that you don’t have to suffer in silence any longer. We are here to help. First, we would like to outline some common forms of abuse so that you can recognize them.

There are other types of abuse that are self-inflicted. Sometimes these are referred to as addictions. Even though addictions seem to be self-inflicted and benign to anyone other than the addicted person, this is rarely the case. Addiction creates a ripple effect much like tossing a pebble into a pond. It starts small at the point of impact, but the effects reach far and wide.

Some examples of other types of abuse and addictions are:

If left unchecked, all these things can destroy not only the person who is abusing or addicted but also their children, their spouses, their friends, and entire families.

If you or someone you love is being abused or is participating in the abusing, you need to stop the cycle now. The longer it is allowed to continue, the more damage it can do. You may feel powerless to stop your abuser or the abusing but through our Scripture-based counselling and prayer, we can help you take the power back and get to a place of happiness and harmony in your life. Contact our office today so that we can discuss your counselling options with you and give you the tools you need to get your life back on the right track.
