Hypnotherapy for overcoming the effects of emotional and physical abuseIt is time to walk away?
Hypnotherapy can help you overcome the effects of emotional and physical abuse. You may have reached a point in your life where you are unhappy with remembering how a parent used to beat you or are trying to summon the strength to walk away from an emotional abusive relationship.
Physical abuse may leave bruises on our bodies but emotional abuse can leave scars on our minds for years. It can have an effect on your relationships with partners and the children you have. Sometimes we don’t even think we are being abused until you meet a new friend and you can see how their partner treats them and it’s very different from the hell you are living.
Abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional, verbal, or a combination of any or all of these. Abuse can also be neglect, which is when parents or guardians don’t take care of the basic needs of the children who depend on them.
Types of abuse
This can be from a male or female. I have seen many men who have been beaten up by their wives or partners. Very often allowances are made for abusers by saying things like “but she had such a poor upbringing”. When we reach adulthood we have choices. We can choose to be the abuser and carry on with the belief that’s it’s ok or we can choose to get help and break the cycle.
Emotional abuse comes in many different forms and is normally borne out of that persons insecurity. This can take the form of name calling and bullying. This is very wearing and can reduce a persons self-esteem so much that it affects every aspect of their life and they start to believe they are useless and unworthy.
If the answer is no and the abuser does it anyway this is abuse.

Even if a parent gives a child food and drink, if they give them nothing else, they are still neglecting their basics needs. Love, friendship, encouragement, safety, security are all basic needs that we need not only as children but also as adults to thrive.
When you are made to feel worthless or stupid this is when your own form of abuse can kick in. Addictions like sex, cigarettes, drink, drugs, self harming, over spending can spiral out of control to give that false high of feeling good. Maybe you feel like you should have been a better person. You may think if you were a better child or partner surely this wouldn’t have happened.
Hypnotherapy can help build your confidence and self-esteem. It can help you realise that none of this was your fault. Hypnotherapy can help you stop self-sabotaging and beating yourself up over your past. It can help build you into the strong person you want to be. Help is here. Everything you say is in strictest confidence in a private safe place, treating you with empathy and no judgement.
