Learn to Manage Jealousy with Couples Counseling
Is your jealousy tearing your relationship apart? Are you jealous of every person in your partner’s life that came before you? Do you have a hard time trusting your partner because of your past history of being betrayed? Jealousy arises out of the innate impulse to protect a relationship from a perceived threat. In some cases, it can be reality-based. In other instances, it may be based on insecurity and lack of safety in the relationship. Regardless of the reason or form, jealousy can be challenge or ruin a relationship. Therapy can assist partners in understanding the roots of the jealousy, overcoming shame, shifting negative beliefs and defensive reactions.
