Domestic Abuse Recovery

Domestic Abuse is far more common than many realise.

Recent figures estimate that 1 in every 4 women and 1 in 8 men will be impacted by this in their lifetime.

Experiencing domestic abuse (which incidentally does not always involve violence) can have a long standing detrimental impact on your self-confidence and self-esteem.


Surviving Domestic Abuse

Often survivors, and it really is a survival, are left feeling guilty about not leaving sooner. Their self esteem may have been eroded by a controlling and belittling spouse.

The impacts can be far reaching and the abuse can adversely impact:

  • Finances
  • Relationships with family and friends
  • Career
  • Self Confidence
  • Physical Fitness
  • Mental and Emotional Wellbeing
  • Housing

My relationship had left me so unsure of myself and my confidence was at rock bottom. Working with Lesley helped me to understand how the controlling behaviour had effected me in ways that I hadn’t even realised.

Now my work has improved, my relationships with family and friends has improved, I feel much more confident and assertive. 

I can’t thank Lesley enough for her help, she has been kind, patient, calm and has helped me to rediscover who I actually am.


Coaching can offer a safe space to unpick detrimental beliefs, to understand how they might have been a safety net within the relationship as a tactic for prevent further abuse. Tactics to prevent the angering of an abusive partner can become habitual and have no use for you going forward.
