Domestic Abuse Counselling. Domestic abuse counselling

The counselling relationship can nurture feelings of trust and safety after domestic abuse and support you in your steps towards healing

Are you feeling impacted by domestic abuse - perhaps the abuse you witnessed or experienced as a child or after fleeing an abusive partner? You can contact me on 07729 193629 or by email.

Surviving any form of domestic abuse - coercive control, emotional and psychological abuse, narcissistic abuse, physical violence, sexual violence, can shatter trust and self-esteem.

Troubling memories, feelings and emotions can surface and persist, despite any joy or relief around fleeing or detaching from the relationship.

The stress or trauma of your experience may have triggered depression, anxiety, panic attacks, nightmares or flashbacks or a feeling of being on edge or numb and disconnected from others.

You may be experiencing feelings of shame, worthlessness, guilt, irritability, loss and grief, loneliness, a lack of trust or self-belief.

You may be struggling in a new relationship.

Whatever you are experiencing, I'm here for you.

I can offer a non-judgemental environment where we can explore and reflect at your pace and nurture your sense of healing and wellbeing.

I have been counselling since 2011, including men and women survivors. I also have personal insight into domestic abuse, and in the past, I was a Helpline Volunteer for Women's Aid.

You can talk to me. I am here to support and empower you through online counselling.

You are welcome to call or text 07729 193629 or email me to book your free consultation.

As a person-centred counsellor, I can help you feel part of a safe and trusting relationship.

Working at your pace, we can explore difficult experiences or memories and troubling or confusing thoughts, feelings and emotions.

If you're experiencing or at risk of continuing abuse - through harassment or stalking, we can explore ways of increasing your sense of safety.

I can offer you genuine acceptance, compassion and attentive listening so you can feel valued, heard and understood - perhaps for the first time.

Surviving the stress or trauma of domestic abuse can trigger new or worsening depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder or bipolar disorder. As an experienced mental health therapist, I can work with you to relieve any struggles or concerns.

I can offer support to explore and express your feelings and emotions and increase your self-compassion and self-care. I may suggest creative mediums, and we can try this out if you'd like to.

Working together can help you gently process what has happened to you and move forward with increased confidence, trust and self-esteem.

Sessions can be over the phone or online using Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp - this is just as effective as working together in person.

If you'd like to book your free consultation, you're welcome to call 07729 193629 or email me.


The counselling relationship can offer connection and support if you're experiencing domestic abuse

Are you being controlled/abused by a partner or family member, or do you think you might be? Do you wish to talk in a non-judgemental space?

I hope to be someone you reach out to - either on my practice mobile 07729 193629 or by email.

Domestic abuse is about exerting power and control. It covers a range of harmful behaviours - threats, aggression, monitoring, depriving, humiliating, preventing, controlling finances, isolating, stalking, physical violence, sexual violence, and regular or constant attacks on your self-esteem, confidence, reality and memories.

If you're experiencing domestic abuse (or think you might be), you may be being threatened, manipulated, forced or shamed into complying with your partner or family member's demands.

You may feel that you're walking on eggshells.

You may have to keep adapting to situations.

Your sense of who you are may be disappearing.

You may be struggling to parent as you choose.

Feelings of fear, anxiety, panic, confusion, shame, self-blame, resentment, loss or depression may have surfaced for you.

Whatever you're experiencing, support is here. You deserve to have a voice and feel heard.

I have been counselling since 2011, including men and women survivors. I also have personal insight into domestic abuse, and in the past, I was a Helpline Volunteer for Women's Aid.

Disclosing abuse may feel challenging, yet you can talk to me. I am here to support and empower you through online counselling.

As I work online, taking care of your privacy and safety is essential, yet we can explore some ways of working that may be appropriate for you.

You're welcome to call or text 07729 193629 or email me to book your free consultation.

As a person-centred counsellor, I can help you feel part of a safe and trusting relationship.

I won't judge.

We can reflect at your pace and gently explore your feelings and emotions, including conflicting feelings towards your partner or family member.

I can offer you genuine acceptance, compassion and attentive listening so you can feel valued, heard and understood - perhaps for the first time.

Understanding psychological and emotional abuse tactics can relieve self-blame, guilt and negative perceptions of yourself, so we can look at this in the counselling space if you'd like to.

The decision to flee/end your relationship will always be yours, yet I can assist you with a support plan so you may increase your safety.

Counselling sessions can be over the phone or online using Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp.

You can call or text 07729 193629 or email me to book a free consultation in the first instance.
