Laura, a gay women, contacted our service for advice about the psychological abuse she was experiencing from her partner of 10 years. Laura was not aware that GEWA would support her as it was a woman who was the perpetrator of abuse, and had a fear that she would be judged. She felt relieved to find out that GEWA would support her. She engaged in a process of counselling to help her work through the effects of living with psychological abuse.
