  • Abusers need help with anger management and to help them unveil the source of their anger/temper.
  • Keep im mind that two women in the United Kingdom die every week from domestic violence.
  • Offering your partner sex on tap and servitude will not end the domestic abuse.
  • Domestic abuse does not decrease once it starts, it often escalates in frequency.
  • Recognise that verbal, emotional, financial and sexual abuse are signs of domestic violence.
