Counselling for Domestic Abuse Recovery at our Clinic in Burlington

Counselling at our Burlington clinic can help victims of domestic abuse through a number of ways.

Individual therapy: Victims of domestic violence have to deal with self-esteem, stress, fear, and PTSD. Individual counseling can help these survivors of domestic violence by revealing a pattern of abuse so as to help create a safety plan, make them focus on their strengths, and teach them to deal with negative beliefs and mental problems.

Group therapy: Group therapy can assist domestic violence victims. Individuals in the group share their events so they can minimize the negativities while providing them with a support system. Art and music can provide group members with an outlet for their emotions. Other group therapies involve animal-assisted sessions.

Couples counselling: Couples therapy is not recommended if violence is the basis of a relationship, since the counselling may not be as effective in an unhealthy dynamic. Some therapists may not want to work with a couple in an actively violent dynamic, but others can conduct a safe therapy session to promote open communication.
