Abuse

People of all ages, genders, ethnicities and social classes can be affected by abuse.

Abuse is defined as any act or behaviour that intentionally harms or controls another person. This typically causes the sufferer intense feelings of shame, hurt and anger and destroys self-worth and self-esteem. Abuse can take many more subtle forms than physical violence.

People often know their abuser – they’re a partner, family member, friend or colleague. Because of this understanding and accepting that you have been abused can feel frightening, overwhelming or shameful. Survivors of any form of abuse may find that the negative thoughts and feelings surrounding it affect them long after their abuse has ended. This can adversely affect their quality of life.

At The Eaves, our specialist counsellors and psychotherapists offer a wide range of therapy options tailored to meet your needs. Seeking help is the first step in understanding and working through the complex emotional issues surrounding abuse and regaining control of your life.

If you are in an emergency situation, please call the Police or contact Refuge.

I felt confident talking about problems I was having in my life. Has really made a difference for me and helped me understand myself/thoughts/feelings a lot better.

I was impressed by how quickly I could talk to someone and arrange my first session. [my Counsellor] has been great as a therapist – she put me at ease immediately, made me feel comfortable and helped me see things in different ways that will help going forward. Thanks everyone.

This experience has been positive and supportive. I feel more in control and empowered. I still have the issues but am currently more confident to deal with my emotions. Thank you.
