How to tell if you’re being gaslighted by your partner

Gaslighting is a very particular style of manipulative and emotionally abusive behaviour.

It can start to surface when one partner wants to leave a relationship.

If you have children together, leaving someone who uses this type of manipulation can be very difficult.

Co-parenting after separation is another challenge.

Counsellor Dr Stephanie Sarkis has written all about this in her book Gaslighting, How to recognise manipulative and emotionally abusive people… and break free.

She describes what gaslighting looks like, and how to manage a separation and co-parenting with a gaslighter.
