Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered if it's possible to break free from the vicious cycle of psychological abuse forever?

Being involved with an abusive person can be a nightmarish journey. Going down that path will open your eyes to how people really are, how broken our society is, and most of all, you’ll learn a lot about your force of will and spirit. 

A lot of people that are currently suffering from abuse aren’t even aware that they’re being a victim. These sufferers have no idea that abuse is taking place right under their noses. Sometimes, the perpetrators are individuals that would never be suspected of being a toxic person. The concealed nature of abuse is what makes it cause so much damage over the long term if it is never put to a stop. 

Here's some of what you can expect to learn:

  • How to identify the red flags of psychological abuse and how to completely break free of it.
  • Learn how to properly set boundaries with abusive people so that your rights and needs are respected.
  • A practical, step-by-step program designed to take you from abused to survivor while minimizing the damage.
  • How to stay away from the abusive individual over the long term and what to do in case of a relapse.
  • And much more...

This book will educate you on the signs of psychological abuse. You will learn how to recognize the characteristics of potential abusers and where these people might be hiding in your life.

You will know exactly which course of action to take in case you ever find yourself in a psychologically abusive relationship. 

You will also learn all about the stages of recovery from psychological abuse and what course of action to take in case there is a relapse. 

This guide will give you the necessary tools needed to escape the vicious cycle of abuse or at least help you identify the warning signs of toxic people, so you never find yourself in this highly undesirable situation.

Start taking back control of your life today!

I'm hghly suggesting this.

Well done on educating me well on the signs of psychological abuse. This deserves the top spot and be noticed by everyone. In this way, we can help others in a small way. This is guiding a survivor to growing and recovering.

For a change.

Now I am ready to kick those toxic people out of my life. With the step-by-step program offered, one can easily break from psychological abuse and be healed completely. Although I wouldn’t say everything’s easy. No, patience and commitment are required. But knowing we have a reliable guide we can lean on makes it feel better, right?

Lots of info. on psychological abuse.

How to become from victim to survivor? Better delve into this. This helpful guide isn’t only applicable in marriage. Providing psychological healing, it goes hand in hand with emotional abuse. Jonathan Costas has it. I’ll make sure I’ll hear it, too.

Helpful than the others.

I went to 3 professionals already, but they weren’t able to help me. I finally gave up and lived with it for years. I thought I was already healed, but it was just hidden. This Psychological Abuse book is not perfect, but most of the insights turned out to be valuable. It is assisting me as I start with my recovery process. Simplified and considerate-that is what this book is all about!

Awesome Audiobook

This book felt like it was written for me. Helps to make sense of the abuse that happens with a narcissist and seperate yourself from their emotional manipulation. I felt like my relationship problems were all my fault, and now see the way I was treated isn’t personal at all, & no matter who was with this person they’d be treated the same way.

Highly recommend!

I recommend this book to all women at the dating age to educate themselves on who is out there as this is much more common than we think and to anyone getting out of a relationship like mine where they just didn't see it coming and didn't understand at all what happened. I never would have labeled my boyfriend a psychopath but this book has helped me see the truth. Thank you for writing it.

Well described!

I'm so glad I bought this. Well written. Easily accessible information and incredibly useful to help me with my boundaries and trusting my own intuition, as well as the insight I gained about the workings of a psychopath and why I'm such a sucker for them.

Worthy listen

This book is LIFE CHANGING. An absolute must buy!! I’d recommend this to anyone, especially if you or a loved one thinks they have a psychopath in their lives or are recovering from having one in the past. This book is good for people associated with psyopaths in ALL capacities — lovers, friends, coworkers, siblings, etc.

Writer gives full stuff for making this book.

An extraordinary instructive book. An absolute necessity read to break you of the endless loop of the narcissist in your life. I was really stunned by perceiving what number of significant recommendations accumulated in such a short book. The book is natural and drawing in, and each word turns out to be separated of your recuperating.
