Emotional abuse

Emotional abuse includes a wide range of behaviours that wound another person, despite the lack of physical contact. The silent treatment, shaming, blaming or humiliating someone, particularly in front of other people, mocking, criticising, name calling, pressure tactics, intimidation, verbal abuse, lying, failing to respond to someone, punishing them, emotional blackmail, monitoring their phone messages, texts and emails and isolating someone from their family, friends and work colleagues are just some of the tactics used by people who emotionally abuse others.

Most of the behaviours listed above aren’t crimes, yet the effects of emotional abuse may last longer and be ultimately more destructive than physical abuse.  Emotional abuse destroys happiness, self-esteem, relationships and peoples lives.

At The Eaves our specialist counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists can offer you a wide range of coping mechanisms tailored to meet your needs and can support you in working through the issues surrounding emotional abuse.
