Sharing Is Caring

5 steps to recover from the effects of abuse

If you've been considering accessing help and you feel it’s your time to thrive - this blog is for you.

Maybe you have some questions about counselling before you make your decision. I have provided some resources to help you make that decision in this blog.


1. Don’t just take my word for it,

Do a little research on how abuse survivors have benefitted from counselling - it'll help answer any questions you might have and help decide if counselling is for you.  Check out my blog 7 Myths about counselling, I answer some of your questions there.  Here are a couple of forums you can check out, it can help to talk to others with similar experiences -  Please make sure you read terms and conditions for any forum you visit, they'll let you know if it's private or public.  Also, forums will have appropriate content restrictions so make sure you are informed.  

2. Contact iThrive Counselling 

If you are not sure if counselling can help you, or if you have any questions I'd love to hear from you.

Or you can book a session with me - come along and find out for yourself.

3. Tell your story

Experience has shown me that you find telling your story, in a safe and confidential environment, empowering.  You may feel relieved straight away, you may feel vulnerable at the beginning - wondering if you've done the right thing.  It's when you are no longer satisfied to remain where you are, that you are driven through the healing process.  This is when you can begin to thrive.

4. You go at your own pace 

There will be no expectancy from me, it’s your time and you'll choose what you'd like to talk about. Some days you may feel that you don’t want to talk about certain things and that'll be respected.

5. All that’s left to do is book a session!

Maybe you've had enough of feeling stuck in the same place never really making the progress you desire.  It’s your time to thrive!
