Codependency is the tendency to obsessively think about others to the point that one’s own needs and wants get relegated to the background. People who exhibit codependency often make decisions that benefit others and not themselves, and thus can feel resentful, taken for granted, and not appreciated. When the behaviour is unchecked for a long period of time, people report feeling like they are “out of control” or “emotional wrecks,” as their moods often fluctuate. Those who have sought medical or psychological treatment in the past are sometimes misdiagnosed with depression, anxiety, or a personality disorder. Codependency is learned behaviour that usually stems from growing up in a dysfunctional family system. Through the use of cognitive-behavioural therapy and other evidence-based modalities, our clinicians can help those who struggle with codepedency to develop the insight and skills they need to cultivate balanced lives.
