The list below will help you recognise the signs of an abusive relationship. Not all methods of abuse are listed here though. Some are hard to define. But, if you are nervous, frightened, or anxious around your partner, then the relationship may not be equal.
Coercive control is the persistent and deliberate pattern of controlling, coercive and threatening behaviour by an abuser to exert control and fear and is at the very heart of domestic abuse. It can include all or some forms of abuse such as psychological, verbal, humiliation, intimidation, physical, financial, sexual, threats and restriction of liberty. It has a huge impact on a person’s physical and emotional well-being.
