Gaslighting has become a common word. In fact, the number of people looking up the term increased by 1,740% in 2022. Merriam-Webster named gaslighting its word of the year as a result.

At the extreme end, gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse where one person is emotionally manipulated, often with devastating consequences. People affected lose trust in themselves while at the same time becoming dependent on the abusive person.  At the other end of the spectrum, many of us unknowingly engage in gaslighting in our relationships, families and in the workplace.

So how can you recognise gaslighting? What kind of a person gaslights and who are the typical victims? Is gaslighting always intentional?

On February 7th, therapist and business coach Gavin Sharpe returned to Riviera Radio for the first Wellbeing Window of 2024. Tune-in. Lean-in. Prioritise your wellbeing. From the bedroom to the boardroom, Gavin Sharpe answers the questions that matter.
