Abuse can be a cycle. When you live with an abuser, you experience so many downs that even the smallest “up” gives you hope that things will end, only for the cycle to repeat again. Abuse breaks you down mentally, and in some cases you may not even realize that it has been eating away at you until it’s too late.
Abuse may not be physical either. Many people live with abusive family members or in abusive relationships where the abuser never lays one hand on them, but is still just as abusive. Because abuse reduces a person’s self-esteem and the way they see the world, there are millions of people living with an abuser right now that have no idea they’re being abused.

When someone plays that significant a role in your life – good or bad – not only is getting away a challenge, but recovering from that abuse can be a lifelong battle.

Abuse isn’t a single issue, and so abuse counselling isn’t about a single problem. It’s there to help work with you as a whole person, so that you can start to recover from the abuse and see a happier life in the future.
