Emotional Abuse Support & Therapy
Sometimes when a relationship encounters difficulties it can loose the normal and desirable qualities, showing evidence of decline. In these circumstances new types of behaviour can be damaging and upsetting and make you feel uncomfortable.
There are a variety of phenomena that could be classed as emotional abuse: criticism, intimidation and threats, telling you what you can and can’t do, being made to feel guilty, undermining or economic abuse. They may have developed in a familiar environment mixed with other components but the point about whether a behaviour becomes abusive is how it makes your feel.
If you feel like your partner is stopping you from expressing yourself, you feel unable to talk about something that is wrong, you feel small, you change your actions to accommodate their actions, then over a period of time this can be viewed as abusive.
Much of the time neither partner wishes to be in an abusive relationship and are willing to make changes to return their relationship to a happier and healthier one.
You can talk to someone who is not involved and help you and your partner to understand the situation better. We provide a safe and private place where you can talk confidentially. Our therapists will listen, be supportive and encouraging to help you to talk through your experiences and find ways to move forward.
