It can often be difficult for men to admit or recognise their behaviour is abusive in their intimate relationships.
Intense feelings of jealousy, needing to know where your partner is, or frequently being in conflict are just a few examples of behaviour that can lead to an inability to communicate well. This can escalate to intimidation, aggression, control and even violence that men go on to regret. This will cause distress and upset to those closest to them, including any children. Importantly, this is criminal.
For some time, the Council has provided intervention to men who have been convicted by the courts of abusive behaviour. Men who participate have talked of feeling better about themselves, more in control of their emotions and reported improvements in their relationships. We are now expanding this intervention to men who recognise they have difficulties expressing themselves and would like guidance to be able to communicate their feelings safely. This service will also include support for partners and children.
We can work with men who are either in a relationship or who are now separated. The important thing is having the motivation to become a safer partner and father, and this can take time.
