Locate a qualified therapist
Finding a competent and compassionate therapist to help you work through the emotional and spiritual pain of abuse is an important part of the healing process. When seeking out a counselor, inquire if they have experience and training in helping survivors of child abuse. Also, ask if the counselor is licensed by one or more bodies. If you are a Christian, ask them if they will respect your Christian beliefs. The following sites provide a list of therapists around the country. Many of these therapists are qualified to help you find freedom from the pain and hurt of abuse.
