Accord counsellors offer the following key tips to people at home at this time:

For individuals living in fear at home, Accord counsellors are trained in identify and handling domestic abuse.  In such situations the priority is the safety of the fearful person and their children.  Accord can support an individual to develop a safety plan and can advise them of specialist crisis support contact numbers. In general, try and keep the lines of communication open with your spouse/partner

Be conscious of how you raise issues with your partner. There are productive ways and unproductive ways of raising issues.

Talk from your own feelings first and express what is difficult for you and what you feel you need rather than blaming and being critical of your partner. Criticism usually begets defensive, stonewalling or disproportionate responses.

Be willing to look at yourself and your behaviour in addition to your partner’s shortcomings.  ‘What is it like to be in relationship and to live with me?’ is a good question to ask ourselves.

Self-management is a very good skill to hone in these pressurised and worrying times.  It might be better to raise an issue at another time so that your partner can hear the cause of concern in a calmer context and to avoid an experience of perceived criticism or attack.
