Victim or Abuser? Or both? ... How to Tell
Are you in a relationship where there is a high level of conflict?
Do you want to end the angry or aggressive behaviour which actually
stops you from getting what you need from your relationship?
Whether we're on the receiving end of this kind of behaviour, or find ourselves using it, even though we say
over and over again that we won't do it anymore, it is exhausting and soul-destroying to have this kind of relationship.
Continuing to do the same old thing and hoping or wishing that it will
be different next time does not usually help things to change.
If you want to avoid your relationship disintegrating, with all the
inevitable difficulties that follow, think about what has to change.
Toni is an experienced counsellor with a special interest in high conflict relationships.
She has a wealth of experience with people affected by abusive or
aggressive behaviour in relationships, as well as with people using
abusive or aggressive behaviour.
Think about what you would like your relationship to be like and what you need to help you get there.
Then take the next step and call to make an appointment.
Are you a profesional or an organisation who wants to know more about
partner abuse or aggression and how to respond to it appropriately?
There are many myths and misunderstandings about the nature of abusive or aggressive behaviour between partners.
Some common ones are:
are rarely physically aggressive.
If he is the victim, he must have deserved it.
If the children are asleep, they're not affected. »
It doesn't affect men as much as women.
abusive behaviour is the same.
Once there is violence, you have to leave.
S/he can't control what they do when they're stressed.
Men who are aggressive think they have to be in charge.
You shouldn't do counselling with a couple where there is violence.
Unfortunately, if we don't fully understand abuse and aggression in relationships we can end up doing more harm than good.
If you would like to be more informed and competent in this area, call Toni for individual or group consultation or training.
