Physical Abuse Therapy

Physical abuse is the intentional, physical harm an abuser causes to another person. This can happen in any circumstances, for example as domestic violence, child abuse, institutional torture, or elder abuse.

If you don't want to talk about the abuse or are in denial about it, you're more likely to develop mental health issues over time, so opening up about it can really help you get through it.
