Domestic Abuse Motivation and Awareness: Abusive Relationships

We work with men and women who feel that they may be abusive in their intimate relationships. If you feel you may be behaving in an abusive way within your relationships, you may recognise some of the behaviours below:

There are a number of ways in which people hurt those around them, you may recognise that you carry out these behaviours within your relationships:

  • Calling them names
  • Shouting at them
  • Hitting, slapping, punching, kicking
  • Smashing things
  • Criticising them
  • Making threats to harm them or yourself
  • Making threats of any kind
  • Checking up on them (emails, texts, phone, Facebook)
  • Driving recklessly in order to scare them
  • Finding fault with their parenting

Our Domestic Abuse Motivation and Awareness Worker can offer you support; working on a 1-1 basis for up to six sessions with the aim to give you a better understanding on the impacts of domestic abuse on yourself, your partner (or ex partner) and children (if applicable) and to establish your motivation for making longer term changes to your behaviour.  Following completion of the sessions, we can also provide links into sustainable behaviour change programmes.
