Healing from the Invisible Wounds: Overcoming Emotional and Psychological Abuse

Emotional and psychological abuse, characterized by a pattern of behavior that undermines an individual’s self-worth and emotional well-being, can be as damaging as physical abuse. Alberta Counselling Services offers dedicated support to help individuals heal from these invisible wounds, reclaiming their strength and self-esteem.

Understanding Emotional and Psychological Abuse:
This form of abuse can include verbal aggression, intimidation, manipulation, and chronic criticism, often leaving deep emotional scars. It’s crucial to recognize these behaviors as abusive and understand their impact on mental health.

1. Recognizing the Signs:
Recognizing the signs of emotional and psychological abuse is the first step towards healing. These may include feelings of worthlessness, anxiety, depression, or a sense of being trapped in the relationship.

2. Breaking the Cycle:
We assist individuals in understanding the dynamics of abusive relationships, empowering them to break the cycle and establish healthy boundaries.

3. Rebuilding Self-Esteem and Identity:
Our counselling sessions focus on rebuilding self-esteem and a sense of self-worth that is often eroded by emotional and psychological abuse.

4. Developing Coping and Resilience Skills:
We equip individuals with coping strategies to deal with the emotional impact of abuse, enhancing resilience and promoting emotional healing.

Our approach is compassionate, empowering, and tailored to individual healing processes:
