Domestic Abuse Is Not A Gender Issue

Domestic abuse is not a gender issue.

If you are living with an abusive partner and intend to continue to do so, I can help you to increase your strength and resilience in the relationship. Learn strategic ways of communicating with an abusive person.

If you want to leave an abusive partner I can help empower you to make the decision. Develop a safety plan and strategies to make the move when you feel ready. I can help with strategies to cope with any negative impacts.

If you have already left an abusive partner I can help you to increase your ability and commitment to continue living without the abusive person in your life. Heal from abuse and be supported in creating a new life – reclaim control over your life.

Regardless of your situation I can support you to:

  • Make sense of your issues.
  • Decide on some goals, assist you with strategies and motivation to achieve your goals.
  • Gain skills to cope with emotional distress.
  • Clarify your thoughts, needs, and wants.
  • Learn proven techniques to manage stress and anxiety.
  • Build your self-esteem and confidence.
  • Feel more hopeful, positive, and alive.
  • Arm you with strategies to cope with debilitating anger, and other effects the abuse is having on you.
  • Work with you to lay the ground for you to grow and flourish into your full alive authentic self.

If you are a friend or family member wanting to support your loved ones, I can assist you to:

  • Understand the dynamics of coercive control and abuse specifically related to what your friend/family member may be experiencing.
  • Establish a range of strategies suited to the situation you’re dealing with.

The Mulberry Practice supports those looking for individual counselling, couples counselling, and young people’s counselling including supporting those suffering or have survived domestic abuse. For more information on the therapy and counselling techniques provided by us, please get in touch.
