Q I’m married 20 years and of late my husband’s tone of voice is driving me insane. It’s not always the things he says, it’s his tone. At dinner time he was speaking and one of the kids noticed it and said “stop shouting”. He comes across as rude, controlling and even to a degree bullying. I have said it to him but he’s not doing anything about it. Once I sense it, I just end up switching off. Any advice?

A There’s 20 years of ‘stuff’ in evidence from your question. How do you or how have you been feeling about your husband? When did you begin to notice your feelings or tolerance towards him changing?
