Providing support to people whose lives have been affected by domestic abuse

Verbal abuse can take many forms and although there are obvious ones like shouting and calling insulting names, it can also take more subtle forms e.g.:

An abuser who uses verbal abuse to intimidate and undermine relies on the person experiencing the abuse and the society that witnesses it, accepting their abusive behaviour and not recognising its serious destructive nature.  Many people start to fear to speak or contradict and lose self-belief in their right to have a 'voice'.
