Have you been feeling guilty or anxious because you are trying to please others? Do you find that you have a hard time saying no to people? Or have a difficult time leaving a relationship that’s not working for you? Do you often feel responsible for fixing a loved one’s problems? Do you struggle with boundaries, people pleasing and unbalanced or difficult relationships? If so, you may have some symptoms of Codependency. Recovering from Codependent patterns can be quite challenging. You don’t have to do this on your own. Having a therapist that’s experienced in treating Codependency will support you to discover and address what has been keeping you stuck and lead you on the road to freedom.
People that have Codependent traits often have a loved one that is an Alcoholic or Drug Addict or has a severe mental illness such as Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Having a parent or being in a romantic relationship with someone that is addicted to substances or has Narcissistic tendencies can really take a toll on your mental health. Working with a therapist that is familiar with Addiction and Narcissistic Abuse and Recovery can help you get through the process more efficiently and quickly.
