Codependency refers to a dysfunctional pattern of prioritising your partner's needs above your own and losing your sense of self in the process.
Although it is healthy to compromise, continually taking responsibility and putting your partner's needs before your own may result in neglecting and unfulfilling relationships.
In some cases, codependency can be defined as a relationship in which the two people unconsciously become so invested in each other that they can't function independently, which is common when one or both partners have abandonment and addiction issues.
Maybe, you take on the role as a rescuer, only to feel frustrated and angry that the role is not reciprocated in your time of need, resulting in unequal and unbalanced relationships.
Suppose you want my help as an individual or a couple. In that case, I will be a guide throughout your process and empower you to be more independent.
Like many people, I have had varied jobs and roles over the years but they all had one thing in common, helping others. In 2010 I decided to go on a journey of self-discovery on a counselling course in the centre of Manchester, where my journey of person centred therapy began.
After working overseas for some time, I moved to Leeds and graduated as a Person-Centred Therapist. I have been blessed to be a part of a fantastic organisation that offers generic counselling in which I have experience and knowledge in many different issues, as well as my private work and ongoing training.
I have also been trained in Couples Counselling where I empower couples to have a deeper understanding of what's troubling their relationships and to have better communication. I also became an individual member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (B.A.C.P) where I work within professional standards and ethical guidelines.
