What is codependency and how does it affect you? Maria Wybrow explains all|E191

Are you codependent? How can you tell if you’re in a codependent relationship? And what even is codependency anyway? 🤷

All questions the brilliant Maria Wybrow tackles in this eye-opening podcast episode. 

Because if you seek the approval of others as a fixer, rescuer or people pleaser, place your self-worth in the hands of others and perhaps even compromise your values and integrity in the process, you may be codependent. 😲

For Maria, it’s taken years to unravel the experiences of her dysfunctional and traumatic childhood. But this process has led her to her true purpose in life – helping others establish better relationships not just with the people around them but with themselves. 

Here’s why you should tune in

Maria dives into the signs of codependency and why your childhood and family dynamic shapes how you form relationships in the future. She reflects on what she learnt after getting divorced and the practices she uses to create and maintain a relationship with her partner that thrives.
