Are you ready to  heal and bounce back  from the emotional prison of fear and depression, and position yourself for the  healthy relationship you desire?

Nadia’s Story
Nadia, a thirty-year-old Muslim woman, has been in an ongoing relationship for the past 5 years. She has kept her relationship a secret from both her family and faith-community, as she maintained, “it would bring shame on my family, and they would be so disappointed in me.” Although she wants to eventually marry her partner, she acknowledges that there are a number of challenges with the relationship, which she conveyed: “He neglects me when I cry, he does nothing… literally nothing,” “I’m tired of his smoking, I use to do these things, but I stopped.  If he is going to be my husband, he should lead me in the right direction.  I found a bottle of vodka in his gym bag, but he said his friend left it in his car. He thinks I’m stupid,” “My friend saw his profile on a dating-site. He denied it, but it’s like I can’t trust him.” 

Nadia acknowledges that these issues have caused them to briefly break-up a few times over the years. However, despite her educational and professional accomplishments, and her ability to financially care for herself, the prospect of being single was terrifying to her. She convinced herself that if she left him, no one would want to marry her and she would spend her life alone.

Through a number of counseling sessions, we discovered that her sense of terror, her fear of being alone, was underpinned by a number of unhelpful beliefs, “I’m not getting any younger, no one will want to marry me. Culturally, I’m too old,” “Why would anyone want me, after I tell them about my past relationships? At least he accepts my past,” “I should be further in my life. I shouldn’t be alone at this point. I should have a family like my sisters and friends. Everyone else has a husband and kids. Everyone else is so happy,” “I feel trapped!”
