Domestic abuse is a pattern of abusive behaviour, there are many different forms the abuse can take, including physical, verbal, psychological, sexual, emotional, threatening, intimidating or involve deprivation. Domestic violence is not a private matter it is a criminal offence and therefore is not an issue that should just be kept between the two people in the relationship. The first practical step to take in an abusive relationship is to tell someone. Discovered early enough, it may be possible to salvage the relationship and prevent the situation spiralling out of control through counselling and other support programmes.

Bereavement and Loss
It is normal to feel sad and even angry when a person close to us dies or a relationship ends. Mourning is a ‘cycle of loss’ which often includes denial, fear, loneliness, grief, anger and letting go. Talking about the loss is usually helpful and allows a person to adjust to their new life with all its changes, good and bad. Keeping things bottled up, or denying the sadness can prolong the pain and can induce depression. Bereavement is a painful process that allows us to come to terms with the loss.
