How can Breakthrough Retreats help me in an Abusive situation?

Break the silence


Abuse occurs when people mistreat or misuse other people, showing no concern for their integrity or innate worth as individuals. Abusers are interested in controlling their victims and use abusive behaviors to manipulate their victims into submission or compliance with their will.


Abusers control their victims in a variety of ways. They may verbally abuse them by calling them names, tell them they are stupid, have no worth or will not amount to anything on their own. They may become physically violent, inflicting pain, bruises, broken bones and other physical wounds. They may rape or sexually assault their victims. Alternatively they may neglect dependent victims, causing damage through lack of action.


Unfortunately abuse is a commonplace event in modern times, with statistics showing one in four adults in the UK have suffered from abuse at some stage in their life. It takes on many different forms, including physical, sexual, emotional, and verbal abuse, occurring in many different contexts, including the home (domestic violence, spouse rape, incest), the workplace (sexual harassment), and in institutional (elder abuse, bullying) and religious and community (hate crime) settings.


Victims of abuse often find themselves dealing with serious psychological and physical consequences. While no therapy is capable of erasing the effects of abuse, Breakthrough Retreats can provide real and meaningful assistance in helping to minimise the negative effects of abuse through their unique therapy methods including visualisations, bodywork, hypnosis family taboo and anger release.
