As a victim, awareness is key when providing domestic violence counseling. Being on the receiving end of domestic violence can be a place where you get stuck and not sure how to find your way out. You may have endured years of either a physical or emotional beat down. Your self-esteem has been diminished. Talking about your experiences and getting support from your therapist will help you understand and normalize your feelings. Treatment will give you tools to help you get unstuck. Understanding that your actions are normal and what others in your circumstance have been through will help you see yourself as having good survival skills. We also acknowledge your strengths and help you see them within yourself. EMDR is a treatment that can also be a resource we will provide to you to help you heal from traumas experienced.
