Abuse Therapy

Abuse can take many forms. Common to them all is that one or more people mistreat another person in a way that degrades their self-worth and damages their well-being.

The often complex nature of abuse means that the victim can find it hard to cope with the abuse and its painful effects, but therapy can help.
