What is partner abuse?
There are a number of different definitions of partner abuse. In Women’s Aid’s view, partner abuse could be physical abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse or financial abuse that may, but not always occur in the home between people in an intimate or family type relationship and forms a pattern of coercive and or controlling behaviour.
This can include forced marriage and so-called ‘Honour’ crimes. Partner abuse often includes a range of abusive behaviours, not all of which are, in themselves, inherently ‘Violent’ – hence some people prefer to use the term ‘Domestic Abuse’ rather than ‘Domestic Violence’.
Whatever you call it, it is wrong. Confidential online therapy is very effective in supporting domestic abuse or domestic violence survivors as it is easily accessible without alerting the abuser that a victim is seeking help and support.
Professional and experienced Online Counsellor (Therapist) and Online Life Coach Paul Parkin
Partner Abuse Counselling experience.
I am an experienced, professional online counsellor, with over 15 years experience working as a counsellor (therapist) and life coach offering confidential, affordable counselling online to clients anywhere in the world.
By living a simple life and working from home I have reduced my costs enabling me to reduce the session fees for clients, making counselling online more accessible to people seeking counselling online.
I have worked in the field of partner abuse counselling, domestic violence/abuse counselling and family abuse counselling and therapy for several years both face to face and online counselling. I have developed and facilitated support groups and helped men and women to find safety, find themselves again, and learn to live a better life.
I also helps people to choose better partners and to identify problematic behaviours before they become an issue. It is never the fault of the survivor when abusive relationships occur but there is a lot to be gained from learning to identify an abusive behaviour before we get involved.
