Counselling for Abuse

Scared for AbuseWhile we know that we can’t change the past, sometimes it is hard to live with.

It may be a recent event, or something that happened a long time ago. Maybe you pushed it to the back of your mind, and now find yourself being reminded that it’s still there. You may not have talked to anyone about it, or maybe people tell you that you should just get over it and move on.

I can help by listening and giving you time to be able to work out what has happened, and the meaning of it for you. You might feel confused and emotional, or detached and over analytical. Some people are troubled by thoughts and images that intrude into their everyday life.  You might be unsure about whether what you remember is real, and you might be unsure about how important it is.

I have helped people who have suffered from neglect or abuse and have found self-respect; suffered from bullying or threats and have learnt to stand up for themselves; suffered from betrayal and have learnt to trust again; suffered from guilt and have found freedom; suffered from neglect and gained self esteem.

Some people are worried that it will be overwhelming, or get strong feelings they want to avoid. This is the purpose of using the help of an experienced counsellor. I focus on you as an individual and work at your pace.  Some people are worried about talking to someone else. You can tell me, whether you think it is something big or something small. We can work it out together.

Your past doesn’t need to intrude on your life today or in the future, I can help.  Please call me on 07594 704204 to book a session, or send me a message below.
