Need advice for someone close
My friend and her husband are going to counselling. She says he's an abusive swine. They've only been going to counselling for a month or so, every other week they go together and once a week they go seperately.
The counsellor gave her the phone number for a women's support group to attend secretly on the side...domestic abuse survivors (or something like that). My friend's counsellor says that her husband is not yet ready to be told that he IS abusive. She wants to know when that could or would be as he's still being a swine. Does he have to brought to a point emotionally that he can handle the truth, or could it be that the counsellor is also afraid of the guy and can't tell him to his face. She would like her husband to get help as she still loves him but she also doesn't want to suffer much longer....does anyone have some experience here that I could relay to her?
