Whatever intervention I offer in my work this week in Bournemouth, Poole or Dorset ( as a couple counsellor, with teenagers and adolescents and as a family therapist) be it, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Mindfulness, Psychodrama, Person Centered Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Solution Focused Therapy, Integrative Therapy or Family Therapy, I will be mindful abuse comes in many forms.
