Helping Survivors and Victims Heal: Things Not to Say to Someone Recovering

Thank you for your loving response. We have been seeing our 4th counselor in 3 years. Nothing seems to reduce her anger. She reacts when triggered. She says she is being dismissed, it is unsafe to talk to me and not trustworthy. She often threatens to leave and/or divorce. When we are doing well, she will create or exaggerate the condition to recreate the drama. She can not differentiate the true from the false. I know it is not all about me, but after years of the same behavior, I am losing hope and am depressed. We go to couples counseling, to learn ways to validate her feelings, which helps defuse, but I think she needs some one on one trauma counseling. Please give me some feedback. I am still in love and want to stay married, but not like this.

How can I help my wife heal from her abusive relationships. She is suffering from the trauma of physical and mental abuse from 3 previous husbands. All alcoholic, drug addicts and rager, just like her father.
