Domestic violence and abuse is a pattern of behaviour designed to achieve power and control over a partner or ex-partner. This is achieved through the use of physical, sexual, psychological and financial abuse or through movement restriction and/or social isolation e.g. stopping you from seeing your family and or friends.
