Do any of these resonate with you?
Domestic Abuse as defined by the UN is a pattern of behaviour in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner. Abuse can be verbal, physical, sexual, emotional, economic, religious or psychological actions or threats of actions used by one partner to manipulate and control the other in a relationship.
Domestic Abuse is no respecter of persons: anyone can get caught out by it.

You are not alone. There is help available.
There can be hope for your future.
The first step to getting free from the impact of Domestic Abuse is understanding it!

“It has helped me to become more resilient as, if anything bad happens, I know I can create a positive headspace for myself… All of the sessions were equally helpful because they addressed important issues that I had been struggling with”
“Your calmness is a strength as well as the way you reflected back”
