Turning your break ups and breakdowns into breakthroughs!
Relationship abuse is much more than violence. Words create a picture in our minds that we link past knowledge, past experience and emotion to identify the meaning of labels.
The truth is, you have no idea what the label of abuse means until you experience it. It can be different for everyone. It can be the difference between life and death.
Abuse come's in many forms, from the obvious physical abuse or violence, through sexual abuse, emotional abuse and even financial abuse.
There are many controlling ways in which an abuser can show up in a relationship. Can you spot them, and do you have any idea how powerfully manipulative they can be?
The emotional damage can be more painful than a physical assault because the impact lasts much longer. The consequences are long term. Whilst a bruise will heal, emotions will sit just beneath the surface. The emotions control your behaviours which means the victim of domestic violence can feel isolated, ashamed, unworthy, and even guilty or responsible in some way. They will often feel fear and therefore may even try to cover up the situation, to stop those awkward questions.
There will be a breaking point however, a point where the balance tips too far. This is your leverage point and you can use this to your advantage if you choose.
This is the point where the you say “Enough is enough!” and decide to end the violence. That decision can mean you take your life back, or in some cases, you take your own life.
Our goal is that you make that decision to to be safe, to achieve more, to become more. If your relationship abuse persists, you are a survivor. If you take back your life you become a survivor, reborn!

Support can come from many sources. Close friends, family, neighbours. Then you have your wider community. Who you turn to for support should be clear from the levels of abuse you encounter.
