Abuse

No one need tolerate abuse in a relationship.  Learn to spot the signs.  Contact me if you would like to read my article on Domestic Violence and Abuse to understand more about the issue and symptoms.  Abuse in a relationship can destroy your self-confidence, impact your health and well-being and lead to you feeling isolated.  If you can get to therapy, please do so as early on as you can – use the contact form in this website.

For specific books on emotional abuse, click this link.  In particular books by Beverley Engels:  “The Emotionally Abused Woman” and also The Emotionally Abusive Relationship: How to Stop Being Abused and How to Stop Abusing (General Self-Help) which both contain some practical information to help you understand your situation as you process how you would like to move forwards.

Rape
More often associated with a violent assault by a stranger, yet often the attacker is someone the victim may know and trust such as a friend, partner or spouse.

Anyone who has been pressured to have sex without giving their consent has been raped. Find out more about the issue.
