Codependency

How to Deal with Codependency

Codependency refers to excessive emotional or psychological reliance on another person a substance or behavior. It is defined when someone becomes so preoccupied with someone else that they neglect themselves.

The common belief is that something outside of yourself can bring you happiness and fulfillment. This is an unhealthy and dysfunctional way to live.
I have seen first-hand the devastating effects that Codependency brings. It can literally suck the life out of someone. Issues connected with this are self-esteem, assertiveness, difficulty handling feelings, and a deep sense of emptiness and loneliness.

The therapy model we will use will help you discover how to deal with codependency, allowing you to become the source of your own happiness rather than depending on someone or something else.

Do you feel unhappy, lonely and/or empty most of the time?

Do you tend to put other people’s wants and needs before yours?

Do you or have you struggled with drugs, alcohol, shopping, sex or other forms of addiction?

Is your self-esteem bolstered by outer/other influences (people, looks, material things)?
