Gina and Julie are thrilled to be joined by Jeff Guenther, LPC to talk about codependency! Do you wonder if you or your partner might be needy or codependent? Tune in to learn about what codependency really means.
Tools to explore when you feel anxious -
What behind the feeling ? Do you need to feel closer? Do you need reassurance?
If you are feeling super anxious or spun up and need to help yourself, what will you do?
Your limbic system is hijacking your brain and we need to get you into your frontal lobe– try doing hard math problems, do a puzzle, play a game you have to think about or get into your body (make a fist and then release, again).
Some questions to explore -
What does codependency mean in my relationship history or my current relationship?
What do I mean by the term “codependent” - what are the observable behaviors?
What is interdependence vs independence or autonomy vs connection or enmeshment vs differentiation
And go see a therapist– you can find one on therapyden.com
