Real Codependency Stories: Jane

  • Post author:

Welcome to another episode of Dr Jenner Podcast. Today, we look at a real-life codependency case and we meet Jane who is recovering from a relationship that showed many signs of not lasting. Listen to how Jane (name changed) coped with the day-to-day codependency issues, how she tried to control the narrative and how she is working through recovery in therapy.

My hope in sharing this story is that people in similar situations will find the courage to take action. For more information about codependency, please go to my online therapy hub dedicated to codependent recovery.

Dr. Nicholas Jenner, a therapist, coach, and speaker, has over 20 years of experience in the field of therapy and coaching. His specialty lies in treating codependency, a condition that is often characterized by a compulsive dependence on a partner, friend, or family member for emotional or psychological sustenance. Dr. Jenner's approach to treating codependency involves using Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, a treatment method that has gained widespread popularity in recent years. He identifies the underlying causes of codependent behavior by exploring his patients' internal "parts," or their different emotional states, to develop strategies to break free from it. Dr. Jenner has authored numerous works on the topic and offers online therapy services to assist individuals in developing healthy relationships and achieving emotional independence.

    The inner voices

    I have worked in the triggers and traumas but the underlying
    Problem is the inner voices

    Feeling unworthy

    The part that I have adopted was a countering voice
