Abuse and living with the trauma

Categorising abuse You can place the most common kinds of abuse into a number of categories such as domestic abuse or bullying, the main forms of abuse categorised by the The World Health Organization include: Sexual abuse Neglect Psychological abuse Physical abuse No social boundaries All the above have one thing in common, abusive actions on children and adults have no social boundaries, it does affect people from all cultures, rich and poor, including all social groups and all religions. The majority of abusers are mainly male, but there are females who also commit acts of serious neglect as well as sexual psychological and physical abuse on children, as well as adults. The above labels and categories are well understood by most therapists and other mental health professionals as just that, a dispassionate label for easy reference, but people who are experiencing or recovering from abuse can be confused by the labelling or even stigmatised by it.  
What’s in a label? The problem with these labels used to categorise the different types of abuse in our society is that they can degrade the reality of the abuse for the victim. although I understand that you cannot condense the huge life changing impact of the abuse a person suffers into a simple label, a couple of words does not give justice to the whole story, for the victim it can feel that it simplifies the experience and in turn diminishes the social and psychological impact on their life. For instance it is quite unusual for a victim to only experience just one type of abuse as one abusive type will unfortunately include additional kinds of abuse, for instance someone in a violent relationship will very often experience physical sexual and verbal as well as psychological and emotional abuse together. Sexual abuse will often include all kinds of suffering that can include every kind of abuse you can try to label, sexual, emotional physical as well as psychological and verbal abuse, they will quite frequently accompany each other. Rape is not just a sexual abusive act, it is also a violent physical abusive act and in turn it will have a major psychological impact so the victim can feel confused if the terminology is not fully explained. You can even argue that because psychological abuse can elicit physical distress in the victim, it could be included as a physical experience, this can include all the symptoms of high levels of anxiety such as palpitations dry mouth stomach cramps and all kinds of other stressful physical reactions such as crying and being sick. So psychological abuse is not just experienced emotionally but it can also have a physical reaction, so should it be classed as verbal reactive physical abuse?
Surviving abuse  Some people who have been abused can’t ask for help, it is just to big a step to take, they just keep it to themselves hidden from friends and family, maybe the emotional trauma, anxiety, or feelings of shame make it almost impossible for them to talk about what happened. perhaps the time has to feel right before they can start to open up about the abuse, or they need the passing of time to dull the emotions first before seeking support.  Not forgetting the people who have built up the courage and seek help only to be rejected or ignored by friends family the police, even professional therapists can handle it badly, leaving them feeling rejected, they may feel betrayed belittled and can stop seeking help altogether.  The road to recovery from experiencing any combination of abuse can be a very difficult personal experience to deal with, even taking the first step toward finding help and support can be a very tough and scary experience to undertake. The effects of being abused will vary considerably from person to person. What is certain is that there are many people who keep their abuse a secret and are not able to get the emotional support they need, year after year they just cope, survive, and continue, dealing with the emotional pain in the best way they can day after day.  The good news is that once that step has been taken they can start the healing process, one of the first changes is to renegotiate the label of being a victim of abuse and becoming a survivor of being abused, is often an important personal distinction that signals a recognition of what has happened is in the past and now is the time for healing, a new phase of life has started.  People can find it a real struggle to deal with the emotional trauma and professional help is often needed to challenge the negative thoughts and emotions, feelings of guilt and shame that often arise after someone has been abused, this can be challenging to deal with but very possible to find emotional healing in time with talking therapies.

Recovery.

The impact on the lives of people who have experienced mental and physical abuse can vary from person to person; unfortunately there is no simple guide or official time line for recovery and there is no pill that can cure the repercussions of experiencing trauma and abuse in life, for some people it is not always about recovering  from abuse but just trying to continue to cope with life one day at a time. With this online counselling service it may be possible to increase it from a just being able to cope day at a time to being able to cope a week at a time and then a month at a time. Unfortunately it can also be about coming to terms with the knowledge that life will never be the same again. On the bright side people do find a way of recovering from a traumatic life experience and they can live a fulfilling life even if that means adjusting to a life that is never going to be exactly as it was. Dealing with the physical and emotional after effects can be traumatising by itself and dealing with the complex thoughts feelings and memories in therapy can be emotionally draining and sometimes extremely difficult, but within the therapeutic space it may be possible to face it, express it, to finally make sense of it, to end or reduce the emotional suffering you feel, eventually starting to find that tomorrow can be a brighter day and that day could be the first day of a brighter future. This online therapy service will not reduce your personal abusive experience into just a couple of words, but except that you need be listened to as a unique person in your own right and allowed to talk about the abuse in your own time, the therapy provided here will always endeavour to treat your life experience in a respectful compassionate and non-judgemental way.
