Breaking the Chains: Empowerment and Healing After Domestic Violence

Domestic violence, encompassing physical, emotional, sexual, or psychological abuse within a household, is a deeply traumatic experience. At Alberta Counselling Services, we offer support and guidance for individuals seeking to heal and rebuild their lives after experiencing domestic violence.

Understanding Domestic Violence:
Domestic violence can have long-lasting effects on an individual’s mental and physical health, self-esteem, and ability to trust others. It’s a pattern of behavior used by one person to gain power and control over another.

1. Recognizing the Impact:
Acknowledging the impact of domestic violence is crucial for healing. This can include physical injuries, emotional trauma, anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

2. Safety and Stability:
Our primary concern is ensuring the safety and stability of individuals who have experienced domestic violence. We assist in developing safety plans and accessing necessary resources.

3. Healing from Trauma:
We provide therapeutic interventions to help individuals process and heal from the trauma of domestic violence, addressing issues such as fear, anger, grief, and guilt.

4. Rebuilding Self-Esteem and Independence:
Domestic violence can severely impact self-esteem and self-worth. We focus on strategies to rebuild confidence and foster independence.
