Religious Abuse & Religious Deconstruction

Breaking free from rigid or harmful religious beliefs can be a challenging process...

On one hand, these beliefs and spiritual communities often served as a basis for our worldview and connection with others, but on the other hand, they often kept us closed off and living in fear and shame of being our authentic self. Navigating a change in our spiritual beliefs and communities can be disruptive and lead to uncertainty, feelings of frustration, and isolation.

Remember, it’s possible to rewrite your script. Therapy can be an invaluable resource, providing you with the space to deconstruct, question, heal, and rebuild your spiritual narrative in a way that aligns with your authentic self. A key to initiating change is having a non-judgmental space to explore your values, desires, and goals openly, without fear of being lectured or encouraged to subscribe to a particular set of views and beliefs.

At Experience Therapy Group, we uphold the ethical guidelines of our profession: to honor our client’s right to self-determination around their spiritual and religious beliefs. We offer an experiential approach to healing from religious trauma, combining traditional talk therapy methods with approaches like EMDR and Brainspotting to help you explore, understand, and heal from your past experiences so that you may feel whole again. This unique approach encourages a deep connection with the therapy process, promoting personal growth and healing through self-exploration.
