Counselling for Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is much more common than realised. Defining what is an abusive relationship is, however, very complex. Abuse can take many forms psychological, sexual, emotional or financial including:

  • Controlling behaviour
  • Bullying and constant criticism
  • Verbal abuse and anger
  • Jealousy
  • Sexual abuse
  • Threats of violence or threats of suicide
  • Enforcing isolation from friends and family
  • Minimising or dismissing another person's needs.
  • Physical violence

The main characteristic of an abusive relationship is control. An abusive pattern starts to build and then becomes entrenched in the relationship or in the family.

The effect of Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence is an extremely important problem, not just because it can lead to serious injury and indeed a startlingly high number of homicides in the UK started off as what appeared to be relatively trivial (in comparative terms) domestic violence which escalated.

Domestic Violence can have a terrible impact on children as well, even if the two people at the centre of it think they have hidden the assaults from others. Moreover, it leads to feelings of unworthiness, low self-esteem, lacking in confidence and becoming dependent on the abuser.

Breaking free from Domestic Violence

The shame of the abuse can mean the injured party doesn't report the problem to anyone, not even friends or family. It's vital to understand that Domestic Violence is a solvable problem and talking to those who have a lot of experience of this difficult situation can be helpful and indeed even life saving. Feeling safe is key and domestic violence is associated with a lot of mental health problems in the victim as well as the abuser, which is why intervention and domestic violence support from professionals can ameliorate things dramatically.

It's easy to end up feeling helpless and hopeless when mired in the trap of domestic violence, but be assured that practical domestic violence help is at hand from our team of experts. The vicious cycle it's easy to get caught in is the low self-esteem engendered by being regularly abused means you feel pessimistic about surviving outside even this abusive relationship. This keeps you locked in. To break out or break through to an abusive partner making contact with one of our team is a crucial first step.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).
