Abuse is Abuse

Posted On: October 1, 2020

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the United States.

Was chatting with my girl friend about the abuse from my ex partners…

“I’m glad I wasn’t physically abused. And maybe it didn’t happen because I was clear that was something I would never put up with…”

Actually there was once my ex husband threw a clock, I think, against the wall because he was so frustrated and didn’t want to hit me.

Even though he didn’t throw it at me, the violence still scared me for a long time.

A lot of people think physical abuse only happens when you are physically hit… but actually even the threat of physical abuse is physical abuse.

None of us deserve abuse of any kind. None of us need to put up with it. We can learn how to speak our truth, assert ourselves and leave when needed! It could save your life or a friend’s life!

About Dr. Martha Tara Lee

Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Dr. Martha Tara Lee set out to make a positive difference in embarking on her doctorate in human sexuality before launching Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.

She also holds certificates in counselling, coaching and sex therapy, and her fourth degree – a Masters in Counselling in May 2018. In practice for more than 10 years, she is the only certified sexuality educator and certified sexuality educator supervisor by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Singapore.

Often cited in the local media, Dr. Lee is the appointed sex expert for Men’s Health Singapore, and Men’s Health Malaysia. She was recognised as one of ‘Top 50 Inspiring Women Under 40′ by Her World in July 2010, and one of ‘Top 100 Inspiring Women’ by CozyCot in March 2011. She has published four books: Love, Sex and Everything In-BetweenOrgasmic YogaFrom Princess to Queen and {Un}Inhibited.

Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive. This comes easily to her because even though she is extremely dedicated and serious about her work, she fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing and sacred. As such, this serious light-heartedness has shone through again and again. For her full profile, click here. Email her here.
