How Can a Codependency Counselor Help?
What is codependency?
First of all, codependency is a learned behavioral and emotional condition that affects a person’s ability to have a healthy and satisfying relationship. People with codependency often are in relationships that are one-sided, abusive, or emotionally destructive. Codependent behavior is learned by watching and imitating other family members who display codependent behavior.
Some signs and symptoms of codependency are low self-esteem, a pattern of destructive relationships, avoidance of healthy relationships, hurt and self-victimization, suppressing emotion, and frantic attempts to avoid abandonment. Many codependent individuals also engage in dangerous behaviors, such as substance abuse or sexual debauchery, to numb their pain.
Codependency can be a rigid pattern to break, but there is light at the end of the tunnel with help from a codependency counselor. A codependency counselor can help you heal your wounds, focus on yourself, and make you feel empowered to make thoughtful choices. A codependency counselor can also teach you how to set and maintain effective boundaries and begin living a life with more serenity.
