Sometimes, people need assistance with having the confidence and courage to end a relationship.
There are many reasons why you may want to end a relationship. Getting separated or divorced is rarely easy.

And manage all the challenges one step at a time.
When it comes to relationship dynamics, adult attachment theory is a critical tool to understand. What attachment style you and your partner have shed lots of light on why you may be feeling or experiencing certain dynamics that have eluded you. There are four primary adult attachment styles are: Secure, Avoidant, Anxious and Disorganized.
Knowing what you are and what your partner is, can be very enlightening. Each style has certain predictable behaviours and can also trigger the other if not in alignment.
Many of these thoughts are the voice of your inner critic… Together we will unravel limiting beliefs that may be holding you back from being in a loving relationship and find lasting love.
At the heart of every person is a desire to feel loved. Every person has a unique way of feeling loved. The five love languages describe the way in which we feel loved and appreciated. This is great information when you are in a relationship and want to improve it, but its also very handy while you are choosing a partner, or in anybody you are in relationship with including yourself 🙂
Depending on our individual personality types, you may feel loved differently than another person does. Understanding and decoding these different ways of showing love will help take the guesswork out of the picture.
We often communicate with judgments, evaluations, criticisms, demands or labels of right or wrong. Speaking and thinking in these ways often leads to conflict and blame, which in turn, can often evolve into sadness, anger, or even physical violence.
I teach my clients a system called Nonviolent Communication (NVC), also called Compassionate Communication, which was created by the American psychologist Marshall B. Rosenberg, who recognized that the way people use language often favors the escalation of violence. Taking responsibility for the way you feel and not relying on others to interpret, guess or imagine is the way to go…
Practicing this system will help eliminate negative emotions, resolve conflict with ease and lead to harmonious and peaceful connection.
