Be careful of therapists who counsel abusers – such as paedophiles, narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths…. and victims/survivors of abuse.

Too often – therapists who counsel abusers – minimize the abuse and make excuses for the abuser.

This is entirely self serving reasons – as it is easier to sit with heinous people and provide them with ‘counselling’ – if you make the person seem more human and nicer than they actually are.

Such therapists also have a tendency to victim blame, victim shame and shame shift. This again – is so the therapist can find it easier to deal with the abuser.

These issues are never in the interests of the victim/survivor of abuse.

In my opinion – therapists should not be providing counselling for both perpetrators of abuse and victims of abuse.

This all too often leads to a lack of empathy for the victims of the abuse.

And I have personally experienced this issue and it has not helped my healing.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
