There doesn’t need to be violence in your relationship for you to be a victim of domestic abuse. The NHS website has a list of questions to consider when thinking about whether you may be in an abusive relationship.

Women’s Aid have a range of resources for help and support, whether you’re a victim of domestic abuse or are supporting someone who is. Access web chats, email help, a supportive forum and the survivor’s handbook.

Coercive control

Coercive control is a criminal offence. Put simply, coercive behaviour is behaviour that controls you, your time and your relationships or finances. If you feel you sometimes don’t do things that you might want to because of what someone might say or do, it may be that they’re exhibiting controlling behaviour towards you.
