If you or anyone you know is experiencing domestic violence, please call 1800 RESPECT. If it’s an emergency, please call the emergency services in your region (000 for Australia).
I decided to start Hope beyond abuse because I have been there and I know how daunting it can be to realise and accept that you are living in an abusive relationship.
I hope that by reading my blogs and listening to the podcasts you will gain insight to what is happening to you and feel less alone. If you know somebody whom you suspect is being abused, I hope you can gain an understanding of how best to help them.
