A Brisbane man with a history of domestic violence breaches has been accused of throttling his latest girlfriend.

The 35-year-old father of two appeared in the city's magistrates court on Saturday on a charge of unlawfully strangling his partner of six months following an argument over finances.

It was conceded there was a lack of medical evidence to back-up the claim and the accused man was bailed on his own undertaking.

He is required to report to police three times a week and have no contact with the female.

The court heard he had been convicted four times of contravening a domestic violence order against two other partners.

The man is also on bail for a charge of breaching a domestic violence order relating to his previous partner.

Besides being accused of strangling his current partner, he is alleged to have left a threatening voice message on her mobile phone message bank.

The accused man's solicitor said his client claimed the woman had mental health issues and he'd been merely trying to prevent her taking an overdose of pills when the incident occurred this week.
