Childhood abuse

What is childhood abuse

Around one in four adults, female and male have experienced childhood abuse. Childhood abuse can happen in different ways, this includes emotional abuse, neglect, physical and sexual abuse. In many cases, people experience more than one type of abuse. Some people seek help and support from family and friends however some people need further psychological support. It is estimated that half of the people who have experienced abuse may have the following symptoms:  

Symptoms

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • post-traumatic stress
  • sleep disorders
  • self-harm and/or suicidal thoughts

Abuse in childhood can impact your ability to trust others. You may have learned to protect yourself by developing coping strategies that may not be helpful anymore. Counselling offers a safe non-judgemental space to explore your experiences and understand the impact of them on your life. Talking about the abuse to someone who is professional can help you develop coping strategies and identity resources for ongoing support and help.
