Need Help

Believe it or not but when we focus on physical and sexual violence we miss 98% of domestic abuse. 

Coercive Control is domestic violence – Spot the signs and tactics of abusive control. 

Refuse to compromise. Loves strange routines. Make you wonder but afraid to know the answer. Use your name for whatever he chooses. Tells his version of your story first. Picks your soft spots to prod and squeeze. Create endless guilt around your children which you see as his. Cause chaos before you go anywhere. Refuses to accept your reasons. 

If you are in immediate danger please call the Gardai or  send a text to 112 if you cannot speak.
