"Codependency" on a psychology issue list refers to a relationship pattern where one person becomes excessively focused on another person's needs and emotions, often neglecting their own well-being. In codependent relationships, one individual may become deeply involved in the other's issues and feel accountable for their happiness, while the other person may grow reliant on this support and care.

Codependency can arise in various relationships, such as romantic partnerships, family connections, or friendships. It can be driven by several underlying factors, including low self-esteem, a desire for control, or a fear of being abandoned.

Codependency can negatively impact an individual's mental health, leading to feelings of guilt, shame, and self-doubt. It may also cause a loss of personal identity and difficulties in setting boundaries, which can worsen the issue.

Addressing codependency often involves therapy, including cognitive-behavioral therapy or relationship counseling. These therapeutic approaches can help individuals adopt healthier ways of relating to others and enhance their self-esteem and sense of personal identity. Additionally, therapy can assist individuals in tackling the emotional and psychological factors that contribute to codependency, ultimately fostering more balanced and satisfying relationships.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward.
