1-in-4 women will experience domestic violence in their life and 1,300 calls of domestic violence are made to the police every day, Tonight Program, 09/02/09.
Domestic violence can affect anyone. It usually occurs between two people who are currently in a relationship or have been in a relationship in the past. It is usually men being abusive to women, and sometimes other family members can be involved. But men do experience domestic violence/abuse from their partners and it also happens in same sex relationships. Because men or same sex couples are less likely to report domestic violence, there is little data on this. Domestic violence can include physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse.
Domestic violence is a hidden crime, victims may feel:
- Fearful of their partner and be too scared to try to leave,
- Love for their partner and may not want them to be criticized or punished,
- Powerless or lacking in confidence,
- Ashamed of the situation and may not want family or friends to know,
- Guilty that they are to blame to some extent,
- Tired, depressed and emotionally or financially dependent on the abuser,
- Unable to show your children all the attention or care you would like to give them.
Children who have witnessed or experienced domestic violence are often:
- Afraid, anxious and/or depressed,
- Withdrawn, guilty and/or insecure,
- Angry, alone and/or frightened,
- Lacking confidence,
- Suffering from health and/or sleeping problems,
- Struggling at school,
- Ashamed to bring friends home,
- Physically hurt or abused.

“Adrian is a fantastic hypnotherapist and well-being therapist. I first visited Adrian after leaving a domestically abusive relationship to improve my self-esteem and confidence but found the combination of methods very effective hence we delved deeper and solved some unresolved issues I had had in the past. He has helped me overcome my traumas from… being molested as a child, being bullied growing up, and being raped as a teen. He has also helped me to get rid of a couple of bad habits I had. Adrian’s kindness, empathy and investment in clients is visible during the sessions. He invests a lot of time into the individual and is extremely patient, even if it means running over the usual time of the session – hence his services are great value for money. As a result of visiting Adrian I have felt the best I have felt in around 18 years so I would recommend him to anybody – you will be in safe, very qualified hands.” (Five Stars) Read more “Anaalise, Domestic Abuse, Rape, Sexual Abuse”
I had suffered trauma and an abusive relationship before I turned 20 and had not dealt with any of the issues I was left with for 10 years. With my anxiety levels high and my confidence very low, being 30 and still single, I couldn’t take my low feelings anymore and knew I had to… do something now. After research and reading Adrian’s Wellbeinghypnotherapy website, I felt that Adrian was the right therapist for me. I cannot tell you how pleased I am! Adrian is very welcoming, caring and professional. He is easy to talk to and made me feel like I could trust him with my thoughts, fears and problems. Adrian explained everything I needed to know reassuring me that the experience will be positive, with the hypnotherapy and mindfulness exercises- I will feel better. I have had around 10 sessions and I can honestly say I feel amazingly much happier with myself and ready to take on future situations. Adrian has helped me learn to put the past behind me and move forward. If you are reading this and hesitating whether to take this step or not- please do as Adrian is a life changer, please do not suffer any longer!

“I saw Adrian Sonnex for help with PTSD from physical abuse early in my life. I was both surprised and delighted with the power and effectiveness of hypnotherapy. Adrian listened to my story and quickly developed a treatment plan with me. Hypnosis itself was a beautiful experience. I was aware of where I was and… what was being said the whole time and felt deeper relaxation than I have ever experienced. At the end of the session I felt better than I have felt in years. I highly recommend Wellbeing Hypnotherapy – Adrian is competent, professional, and extremely compassionate therapist.” (Five Star) Read more “Tracy, Physical Abuse”
Having had hypnotherapy in the past I know how effective it can be in removing anxiety and overcoming issues. However, in the 10 years since my longest relationship ended I seemed to be stuck in a pattern of being in emotionally, physically and sometimes sexually abusive relationships that I was very effective in blocking out.… The hypnosis with Adrian helped immediately in reducing my anxiety levels but I was keen to understand and break the pattern of being in unhappy relationships.
Adrian was always willing to listen to my outpourings and along the way I gained some key insights into the way I have viewed myself all my life even since childhood. He has challenged some of my way out beliefs like never being good enough and that for anything positive that happens to me has to be balanced out by something bad and I used to live my life in fear waiting for this to happen. I had been apart from my ex for several months when I first sought therapy but had always gone back weeks or months later and this continued for over 3 years but I am confident enough in myself now to say that I will never go back. I had absolute trust in Adrian and was able talk about things with him that had never ever been spoken about with anyone else without feeling stupid or embarrassed.
On a day to day basis I am more relaxed in myself and experience more good feelings. I will continue to practise Mindfulness and in time I am hopeful of being in a happy and fulfilling relationship. (Five Stars) Read more “Karen, Abusive Relationships”
