Bullying is something we usually associate from childhood in the school playground but is more common than people think and can affect people of all ages. It is recognised by a repeated behaviour that intends to hurt another person physically or emotionally.
It can take multiple forms including verbal threats, physical assault, gossiping, calling names and online cyber bullying.
It can make you feel very alone, miserable and break your self-confidence and esteem. You may feel like everyone is against you or that nobody cares. This is not the case, things will get better and support is available.
Expert therapists who are trained in this area can help you deal with bullying.
It may have affected you at an earlier time in your life and is often a factor in the development of other issues. Counsellors who specialise in bullying can use a variety of techniques to help you.
