Reclaiming Strength: Healing from Physical Abuse

Physical abuse, involving intentional harm or injury to the body, is a traumatic experience that can leave deep physical and emotional scars. Alberta Counselling Services provides compassionate support and therapeutic interventions to help survivors of physical abuse embark on a journey of healing and reclaiming their strength.

Understanding Physical Abuse:
Physical abuse can occur in various contexts, including domestic situations, caregiving environments, or institutional settings. It is crucial to recognize its impact on both physical health and psychological well-being.

1. Addressing the Physical and Emotional Impact:
The journey of healing begins by addressing both the physical injuries and the emotional trauma caused by abuse. We offer a safe space to explore these impacts and start the healing process.

2. Building a Support System:
A robust support system is vital for recovery. We assist individuals in building or strengthening their support networks, whether through family, friends, or community resources.

3. Developing Coping and Resilience Strategies:
Survivors of physical abuse often face challenges such as anxiety, fear, and a sense of powerlessness. We focus on developing coping strategies to overcome these feelings, enhancing resilience and self-empowerment.

4. Rebuilding Self-Esteem and Trust:
Physical abuse can severely impact self-esteem and the ability to trust others. Our counselling sessions aim to rebuild a sense of self-worth and gradually restore trust in healthy relationships.
