In this video, I discuss the taboo subject of domestic abuse and my experiences of it both as a child and as an adult. Watching my mum being beaten was distressing and my own experiences of being dragged by my hair or locked out of the house was terrible too. In those days domestic abuse was a hidden secret, kept behind closed doors, things are starting to change, there is more help available now. Nobody should suffer in silence and nobody deserves to be treated that way.
