Customer Question

Hello. I am a novelist (honestly!) and my character (called Bo) has been to the home of her ex-lover (Alice) and beaten her. Alice has been knocked unconscious and suffered severe bruising, a fracture to the skull and memory loss (because that helps with the plot) but her injuries aren't life-threatening.
I am assuming this would count as GBH. If found guilty, what sort of punishment would she receive? And can psychiatric help be a condition of that?
