CODEPENDENCY THERAPY

Lets Move Forward and Develop Healthy Patterns

CULTIVATING YOUR HAPPINESS

Codependency is a dysfunctional dynamic relationship where one person sacrifices their own needs and well-being for someone else, often developing an unhealthy mental and emotional reliance on the other person.

This type of relationship doesn’t exclusively apply to romantic partners. In fact, Codependency can occur with friends and family members. A codependent is intense in how one deals with emotional regulation, is easily manipulated, and is often unable to rely on oneself for stability.

Codependency is marked by a lopsided or unequal power dynamic where the giver enables the taker’s often harmful and irresponsible behaviour.

Am I in a Codependent Relationship? What does that look like?

  • You have a tendency to feel guilty all the time
  • You feel like you’re walking on eggshells to avoid conflict with the other person
  • You ask permission to complete daily tasks or participate in activities
  • You apologize even if you’ve done nothing wrong
  • You feel sorry for the other person when they hurt you
  • You do anything for the other person, even when it makes you feel uncomfortable
  • You need other people to like you in order to feel good about yourself
  • You struggle to find time for you
  • You feel as though you’ve lost yourself in the relationship

You control the changes you make in your life and it’s okay to ask for help. That’s what we’re here for.

Symptoms of Codependency may include a disconnect from your wants and needs, unhealthy relationship patterns, negative self-worth, anxiety, and insecurity. These symptoms can worsen if left untreated.

The 5 Core Symptoms of Codependency, according to Pia Mellody

  • Difficulty experiencing appropriate levels of self-esteem
  • Difficulty setting functional boundaries
  • Difficulty owning our own reality
  • Difficulty acknowledging and meeting our own wants and needs
  • Difficulty experimenting and expressing our reality moderately
