Codependency is a condition that places your own happiness and well-being on hold while focusing on someone else's well-being. You may be anxious to say or do the "right thing", or find yourself having to manage other's lives to gain satisfaction in your own. Perhaps you find yourself ignoring your own needs or emotions while constantly fufilling the needs of others. 

Codependency affects an individual’s ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship and can be also known as a loss of self to others. Through counselling, you can learn new tools to help recognize these unhealthy patterns, become emotionally aware, set healthy boundaries, become more assertive - all while honouring yourself & gaining new self-esteem.
