Online abuse counselling – What it is?
Online abuse counselling gives people who have been/are being abused a voice, by contacting a counsellor online from the safety of their own home or even from work in a lunch break. Often people break the cycle of abuse and reduce the abusers control, simply by talking to someone who wants to help. If you are living with abuse, then you may also have problems with anxiety and or depression.When someone is being abused in any way, what is important is to get it to stop and to help the person being abused to feel safe. This sounds simple, but it isn’t. One of the first things that needs to be done to help the person being hurt is that they find someone that they can trust unconditionally. Finding such a person is extremely difficult.
Many people who genuinely want to help can find themselves so upset that they can do the wrong thing and in some cases make things even worse, this is the last thing that the person being hurt needs. What is required is someone who can listen to the facts and help the person being abused to explore their options, look at strategies for staying as safe as possible and to work at the pace of the person being abused. It is absolutely essential that ‘they’ stay in control of their situation. No matter how isolated you feel, I am here and able to help, abuse counselling is effective and at your pace.
