Counselling for abuse

This page lists psychotherapists and counsellors in private practice and available to help victims of abuse, whether domestic, sexual or emotional abuse. Those in abusive relationships may not be subject to tangible physical abuse but still be victims of controlling behaviours, intimidation or psychological manipulation. Other forms of non physical abuse may be behaviours which at first may seem less serious such as shaming, lying and neglect, but have become ingrained patterns of repeated behaviour.

The therapists listed below have all specified abuse as an area of focus for them. Given the potential vulnerablity of those suffering abuse it is recommended, if seeking help from a therapist, to look for someone accredited by a professional association such as the UK Council for Psychotherapy or the British Association for Counselling and Pyschotherapy. Both organisations set strict codes of conduct to which accredited therapists must comply.
