As examined through countless subjects, many have concluded that majority of the effects, caused by emotional abuse can be overcome. But the Question is, is it possible that every single effect of the victim can be fixed.

This Includes Both conscious and subconscious beliefs.

Your first argument already starts by changing the original question. The original question was "Can emotional abuse truly be overcome", not "Can every single effect of the person be fixed", which is a loaded question.

Of course, the first question is true. You can overcome many traumatising events in your life with simple counselling and a lot of affection. This, as well as avoiding discussing and moping about the traumatising event, can lead to a full recovery.

Not every single effect can be fixed though, as this would null the very definition of emotional abuse and trauma.

Like when you are told as a child over and over that you are worthless and in your adulthood, there is still a subconscious belief that you are.

What do you mean by "subconscious beliefs"?
