Please try not to worry, we understand that it’s really hard to talk about it so don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Many callers don’t know what to say at first but the helpline workers are very experienced and will help you through it gently. However, if you don’t feel ready to call don’t worry, there is lots of support on here.

It’s completely natural to hold onto some hope of your husband changing, but it sounds like deep down you know that he won’t, and realising that must be extremely upsetting. However this realisation and awareness is going to help you move forward towards a happier life.

If you haven’t already have a look through The Survivor’s Handbook on this website which goes through many practical issues such as housing and refuge.

You can find support in your area via this link; https://www.womensaid.org.uk/domestic-abuse-directory/ You may find it helpful to meet up with a domestic abuse support worker to discuss your concerns and to get advice about the practical issues.

If you have any questions, please ask.
