In brief: Many psychologists

And counselors can help with the trauma of emotional abuse.
The most effective treatments are (1) cognitive therapy that includes exposure through imagination and in real life and (2) eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (emdr). Those techniques, combined with stress management and empathic understanding, can help you decrease the distress of memories and reminders of the abuse.

In brief: Many Options

Often times, professional help (counseling) can be very helpful.
There are many types of therapy that can help those with a history of abuse. Meditation, relaxation and exercise are all healthy things you can do for yourself in addition to therapy.
