Studies shows that people who are in or have left an abusive relationship experience a higher than average level of anxiety, depression, panic attacks and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Many victims find it difficult to deal with the emotional and psychological impacts of abuse and the ways it continues to affect their lives and relationships with others over time.
Fortunately, research also suggests that counseling services for victims who have experienced abuse can help to improve their well-being. For many victims, receiving counseling can be crucial in their recovery from trauma. SPAN’s counseling services are a great place to start your journey toward safety, hope and healing.
Whether you are in the midst of chaos, years have passed since the last abusive incident or you have witnessed a loved one experience abuse, you can find support. At SPAN, we offer individual counseling sessions and support groups that can assist you toward a safer and more informed life.
