Date, Time & Location
The Echo Society's experienced counsellors and psychotherapists are here to provide therapeutic support for those who have been impacted or are struggling with the traumatic effects of narcissistic abuse. If you have been or are currently in a relationship with a Narcissist, finding a counsellor or psychotherapists who is familiar and experienced in working with narcissistic abuse is vitally important, as it can be notoriously difficult for a therapist not trained in narcissism to correctly identify and work therapeutically with this relational abuse and as we see all too often here at The Echo Society for those impacted by narcissistic abuse and accessing our service feeling re-traumatised all over again.
Many might spend years unaware that they have been in a narcissistic relationship be it a narcissistic parent, partner, sibling, employer/employees, and or friend. The effects from narcissistic abuse often causes deep trauma and distress resulting in mental and physical health problems. Here at The Echo Society all counsellors and psychotherapists bring with them their personal experience and challenges of their own narcissistic abuse and recovery and have a deep and profound understanding of the difficulties faced by those impacted.
