Verbal abuse

Verbal abuse might not leave a physical scar on your body, but it can have a significant impact on your mental health and wellbeing.

You should not have to face abusive taunts and criticisms from your partner.

If you are in a relationship where you are constantly criticised, insulted and taunted, you are the victim of a verbally abusive relationship.

This is a recognised form of domestic abuse, and you do not need to worry about people not believing you just because you do not have physical scars. There are people out there who understand, who have dealt with other women who have been in a similar situation and who can advise you. You are not alone in dealing with this.

It is always a difficult decision to leave a relationship, especially if there are children involved or you have been left feeling worthless and vulnerable.

But you can talk to people in confidence, discuss your options, get advice and support and plan a safe way of leaving the relationship and finding somewhere new to live.
