Spiritual Abuse & Crises of Faith


An area of special interest is faith, the church and the counselling of abuse survivors. In this section of the site we deal with the difficult issues that can arise in a church resulting in a crisis of faith and emotional mental health problems. The nature of the subject is of course very sensitive and sensitivity is always increased where a church is involved, after all we are on hallow ground where trust and safety is non negotiable. Lets us be clear the vast majority of families, businesses and organisations are without abuse. But some do abuse and the church is no different. They are a very tiny minority and with some sensible precautions they can be rooted out and avoided. For victims of Spititual abuse support is available here.
