The honest truth about domestic violence.
Domestic violence is a pattern of threatening, controlling behaviour used by one person over another within a close or intimate relationship. This form of abuse is, unfortunately, taking place all around us and yet very few of us will be aware of it happening to our friends or family as it usually occurs behind closed doors. The term domestic abuse covers a wide range of behavioural traits. It can include:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional or psychological abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
Domestic abuse can happen to anyone regardless of gender, age, religion, race. The victims have often been isolated by the abuser and so their access to friends and family have been restricted. Regrettably, many victims of domestic violence may not openly speak about it.
In many cases, victims of domestic abuse need to build the confidence in themselves again before they can take the next step and leave their abusive partner.

We know that this can be an upsetting time for all parties involved, so we treat every case with professionalism and discretion.
