If you must continue to accommodate the abuser in your life as for example, a family member or coparent, I have a tried and tested formula for doing so that works.

That’s it, that’s the magic formula……simple, isn’t it?

As an ex-athlete I’ve always advocated the benefits of keeping in shape physically, but it’s just as important to look after your mental wellbeing. Book a session with Wendy, she’s the person to help you look after your brain just as you would your body.
