Bullying is the name of physical and verbal aggression directed at a specific person. One uses his superior strength or influence to repeatedly intimidate the other person until the person does what he wants. In this excerpt, we will discuss the types of bullying and how a counselling psychologist can help deal with things better.
Common Types of Bullying
Many famous counselling psychologists in India has categorized bullying. There are five main types of bullying, i.e., Physical bullying, Verbal bullying, Relational bullying, Cyberbullying, and indirect bullying.
1. Physical Bullying
Sometimes a bully finds pleasure or satisfaction by establishing his power through hurting or harassing someone. That is Physical bullying. It involves different types of attacking, like hitting, kicking, pushing, punching, etc.
2. Verbal Bullying
Verbal bullying refers to giving pain with the use of words. For example, name-calling, taunts, making sexual or bigoted comments, insults, distorted mimicking, harsh teasing, or threats.
3. Relational Bullying
Relational bullying is the outburst of anger or a jealous feeling on a specific person. For example, excluding someone from a group, continually throwing taunts to make the person uncomfortable, spreading rumours, etc.
4. Cyber Bullying
When a bully tries to harass someone through the internet, that’s Cyberbullying, for example, hacking email address, instant messages, social media accounts, hurting or abusing, etc. Social networking is now a part of everyone’s life because it connects people. But with social networking, Cyberbullying can take horrible shape.
5. Indirect Bullying
Indirect bullying is ignoring someone entirely and makes them feel invisible or like an outsider.
Therapy for bullied people
Bullying can be a horrible experience for a person. So, naturally, the terrifying phase can affect a person’s whole life. It can give birth to anxiety, anger, shame, and isolation. In this situation, sound therapy can help you to overcome your difficulties.
Psychologist doctors in Chennai are trained to help you in this kind of situation. Their therapy will help you understand how exactly the bullying affected your life and how you can move forward. With the help of assertive communications, they try to convince you to open up because conversations help to pop out emotions that you may have suppressed in you for a long time.
Apart from therapists, victims can also benefit from friends, family, and support groups in which more people like you are facing or have faced similar situations. Children who had to experience bullying need helpful talk with their school counsellor at first. They need to believe that there are people to support them or save them. Professional assistance can repair their self-esteem.
Therapy for people who bully
Yes, you read right; people who bully can be benefited from therapies too. They are not just a few “bad” persons. The treatment can only be useful if the bully learns to acknowledge his behaviour openly. Now for that, they need to understand how bullying can affect someone’s life. Therapists here in Chennai can help them to explore the reasons behind their bullying behaviour with their therapy sessions. A therapist should help them resolve the underlying core reasons and then teach them new communication skills and positive behaviours.
Sometimes personal wounds can lead someone to act something like bullying; A Therapist can cure the wounds. But before that, they need to understand they are doing something wrong; that’s where therapies enter.
How a psychologist can help
Bullied patients’ emotions are pretty much unstable than ordinary people. And that is petty obvious in this kind of situation. Psychological therapies like CBT and Counselling can be offered to a bullied person. Therapies can provide a comfort zone to a patient to open up and communicate about their concerns. For instance, finding an experienced counselling psychologist in Chennai who has worked with bullied clients might be a better choice. Talking to them can make you confident and give you the courage to face the challenges ahead.
How do you know you need Counselling for Bullying?
Feeling depressed or distressed is normal while dealing with different types of bullying episodes. But it is essential to seek help if the distress is lasting longer. You may feel like losing all the abilities to survive your daily life or feel extremely weak to face further challenges. A counselling psychologist helps you to stand up against a bully and restore your willpower.
Here are a few tips for choosing the right counsellor:
Explain what you are going through and describe the reasons why you have come looking for a counsellor.
A bullied person needs to seek help from someone who has the experience of treating people with similar situations. This is very important to listen to someone who knows this background.
Ask your counsellor how he or she is going to treat you. Tell them if there is something you want. You cannot just waste your time and money by believing someone’s treatment blindly.
It’s normal to feel nervous when talking to an unknown person and sharing what you are not even comfortable sharing with your closest people. Half of the success lies in your interaction with a counsellor. Every counsellor cannot be a good match for you, but it has to be.
Every psychologist in Chennai is professional enough to understand the importance of effective communication. If they feel that the sessions are not going smoothly, they will suggest you by themselves to find a new one. Remember, non-effective Counselling can make your situation even worse.
