I am a consultant in all aspects of coercive control, domestic abuse, and post-separation abuse.  My MSc is in the Psychology of Coercive Control.  I am a  PhD Candidate and my research interest is Family Court and Domestic Abuse.  

Coercive control is still not well understood.  It is a pattern of behaviour designed to manipulate and control a victim and is just as dangerous as any act of physical violence.  It can occur in a relationship but is just as common when a couple have separated.  In fact, it can escalate after separation.  My training will help your organisation know what coercive control looks like and the psychology behind it.
