If you’ve dealt with any type of abuse in the past, you may be aware of the adverse effects it can have on your mental health. On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you’ve been abusive in the past, you may have trouble forgiving yourself.

Regardless, a licensed therapist can help you access your feelings and heal from abuse you’ve experienced. Wherever you are located in Connecticut from Bridgeport to West Haven or even New Britain, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Signs You Need Help with Abuse

Whether you’ve abused someone else in the past or you’ve been a victim of abuse, you may have some scars that make life difficult.

Here are some signs you need help with abuse:

  • You may be easily triggered to feel fear or panic.
  • You may hold a lot of anger toward the person who abused you.
  • You avoid talking about or doing anything that can remind you of your experience.
  • You blame yourself for your experience.

Abuse comes in many forms, including physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, verbal abuse, and more (this is not an exhaustive list). No matter the type of abuse you are dealing with, Mental Health Match can help you find a therapist to get the healing process started and improve your life.
