Gas Lighting – What is Gas Lighting + how do I know if it’s happening to me?

Share This Post

Today I’m talking about Gas Lighting.

It’s something I’ve been seeing too much of in my world at the moment.

I’m seeing it in my personal life – amongst my friends, in my clients – and on a much larger scale in world politics at the moment too.

And – I just can’t stay quiet about it anymore!

Gas lighting is a form of manipulation and control that can occur in relationships causing the victim to question their own feelings, instincts and sanity. It is emotional and psychological abuse.

In gas lighting, the abuser sees the victim as an object, a possession, something to control – although they might not necessary be aware that’s what they’re doing.

And it doesn’t just happen in intimate partner relationships – it can happen in the work place by bosses, it can happen from friends and unfortunately from other family members like parents.

In this episode I share:

  • What gas lighting might look like and the signs to look out for that you’re being gas lit
  • What to do if you’re in a relationship with someone who is gas lighting you, and
  • How to avoid this form of manipulation and control.

We’ve been talking passionately about this in my Facebook group, Wholehearted Love, Sex and Intimacy – which is for women only – and I’d love you to come and join the discussion and share your experiences with this.

We all want love – we want to believe the person we love and know that we can trust them.

We all deserve a healthy, stable, loving and respectful relationship.

And you need to know that it IS possible.

If this is happening to you and you’re ready to move on to a healthier, more loving relationship, this is something that I support people with, so please visit the coaching page of my website and book a 20 minute call with me so we can find out if we’re a good fit for working together.
