It can be difficult to honestly face up to the effect your behaviour is having on your partner and the rest of the family. You may be feeling bad, even guilty at times about your behaviour.

However not doing anything about it will only make things worse for everybody concerned. You may also at times find yourself minimising, making excuses and pretending that things aren’t that bad. Your behaviour is not acceptable and it is having a damaging effect on your partner and children.

Joining a MOVE programme requires a lot of hard work and being honest with yourself. Change is possible and that you can stop abusive patterns of behaviour.

Who is the programme for?

If you have hurt your partner in any of the following ways, then you should consider contacting us?

  • Emotional/Mental Violence: threatening her, controlling who she sees, making her feel bad, threatening to harm yourself in order to get your way, being silent, sulking
  • Verbal Abuse: Shouting, raising your voice
  • Physical Abuse: pushing, hitting her
  • Financial Abuse: withholding money, deciding how she should spend her money
  • Sexual Abuse: pressurising her to have sex, sulking or punishing her for not having sex
  • Post –separation abuse: continuing to try and control her behaviour, stalking activities, aggressive texts, phone calls, talking to your children about your partner in a very negative and abusive way.

Your behaviour has serious effects on your partner and also your children’s lives.
You may not be able to see how your behaviour affects your family but your partners and your children can suffer emotionally as a result of your actions. By attending our programme, you will become more aware of the impact of your behaviour.
