It has helped confirm the behaviour I experienced in my relationship was emotional abuse.
I feel like I have been listened to and I have been informed of my rights and options.
I now understand the cycle of abuse and have the confidence and knowledge to change how I deal with it, and support my daughter to be empowered too.
only happens in poorer families
Anyone can be abused. Domestic violence is not confined to poorer families, those on benefits or so-called problem families. It happens in urban and rural communities, in high rise estates and middle class suburbs, in white and in ethnic minority families. Any woman can be abused, regardless of her age. She might be any of the women you have come in contact with: your sister, your daughter, your mother, your friend, your colleague, your neighbour.
Domestic violence crosses all boundaries, social and economic, religious and cultural.
