Home > Our Services > Help If You Are Abusive > How Can Abuse Affect Your Partner?

Abuse can seriously affect the health and well-being of your partner. As well as the physical effects such as bruising, broken bones, cuts and wounds, it can make her feel physically sick, have panic attacks, feel constantly scared, have disturbed sleep and depression. Some women have been left with permanent physical disabilities and a number of people are actually killed by their partners each year.

 For others, the abuse can affect their confidence, self-worth and stress levels so badly that they feel they want to kill themselves.
