People who Judge

Posted October 8 2014


People who jJudge - Graphic thoughtHave you changed as you've gone through life, and then found it difficult when people from your past come around?

When you have shared history with people, but they haven't really met you since a life change, you can find yourselves out of synch with each other. If there is enough goodwill between you, usually you will find a way to continue to celebrate past memories and tolerate current differences as your relationship moves to a new level.

However, if the person judging your current behaviour, using their past perceptions to do so, then it might be more appropriate to let go and move on, giving yourself time to grieve for the loss of what you had.  

Should the person be a family member or an ex-partner, then the sheer weight of history can be overwhelming to try and cope with. If you want a helping hand, give me a call.

"Cathy has saved our life together. From the first distraught phone conversation, and in sessions over the last few months, Cathy has helped us rebuild our shattered marriage and learn a great deal about ourselves, both as individuals, and as a couple. Cathy provided a balanced view of our problems and allowed us to discuss them openly without feeling like either one of us was being judged or blamed. She has clearly worked incredibly hard, both in the sessions and planning a way forward for the next session. She provided a comfortable and relaxed environment for us to openly discuss some difficult issues and have given us the tools to continue to grow as a couple. During the time we have known her she have been flexible to our family needs and often gone further than she needed to to support us through some very difficult times. We are very glad to have met her, really pleased that she cared, and highly recommend her innovative and understanding approach to counselling."
