During my time as an MP many people have approached me for help because they are in violent and abusive relationships.  I’m aware how difficult the circumstances can be but my advice would be not to suffer in silence and don’t be afraid to seek help.

You’re not alone – there are many excellent sources of support and advice available to you, regardless of whether you are in a male/female or same sex relationship, such as Bristol Domestic Abuse Forum http://www.bdaf.org.uk.  Take a look.
