Caleigh Smith is a professional counselor who specializes in trauma-focused therapy and a particular issue called codependence.Many of youmay have heard the term codependence but like most people, might not understand exactly what that is … many of you probably should.Many professionals crash into burnout and other life crisis due to underlying issues associated withcodependence.If you feel like you keepbumping into some recurring themes in your life that are bringing you unhappiness and frustration… you may be codependent.This problem often goes by undiagnosed and wreaks havoc, as a silent destructive force in people’s lives, destroying careers and personal relationships … and the consequences of codependence are often blamed on all sorts of other problems… mostly because people who suffer from codependence most often have no idea about this problem, let alone the fact that they may be affected by it.Some of the topics covered:Her perspectives on codependence as someone who ha...
