Battered women need all the help they can get. It is good to choose a counselor who is familiear with battering and its effects, though. The WRONG counselor can make it worse.

Nette,

Are you in a bad way and afraid to seek counseling.

Worried Dad is the best "expert" you can possibly talk to... the man has done his research.

If you are in a bad way, please try to get out and get as much help as you can get.

Z.

No decent person would try to discourage a battered woman from seeking counseling. Did somebody try to talk you out of seeing a therapist?

I don't know if this is what you mean or not...

With my mom, she went to counseling and had initially wanted my dad to go too. (He never did)

My dad physically, emotionally and sexually abused my mom, older brother and my older sister continuously for years.

To this day (15 years after the divorce) my mom speaks rave reviews about the counselor that she saw towards the end of the marriage. (Her first counselor ever)

My mom does say however, that there did come a time when her counselor said that she had 'done all she could do' and that it was 'up to my mom' essentially refusing to see her any longer. My mom had begun to cling to her.

Now I don't know if that's what did it; because that counselor was the first person who really seemed to care for or understand my mom... But we left dad soon after, and have never been nor looked back.

So this could be the only circumstance that I can think of in answer to your question… That the battered woman has received all the professional help she could possibly get, and it is her indecision that is killing her.

Hi nette

I bet I can tell you who would be opposed to women recieving counseling to increase their self-esteem:

battering men and the men and women who enable them to batter.

I have seen that side of the coin myself one too many times...
