Domestic violence does not just mean that your partner is hitting you. The abuse can be psychological, physical, sexual or emotional.
Domestic violence can also include many things, such as the constant breaking of trust, psychological games, harassment and financial control. It is rarely a one-off incident and is usually a pattern of abuse and controlling behaviour.
It can affect adults in all types of relationships and can also involve violence between parents and children.
