Commitment Problems

I’ve seen a number of patients recently experiencing Commitment Problems this is usually due to a negative past relationship where they have been very hurt, either in an intimate relationship or with a parent, people become very fearful of commitment. Men seem to more vulnerable to this problem than women often due to that fact that women tend to be a lot ‘braver’ in allowing themselves to become emotionally hurt.

Men and women with problems on commitment are very tortured and full of fear. They are in a constant state of emotional conflict because of their negative irrational beliefs about love, commitment and relationships. In relationships they create great confusion, havoc, pain and anguish as their behaviors are often insensitive, unpredictable and just downright strange.

Commitment phobics can make people who are saints turn into crazy people, as they play games with their minds and their hearts.

Below is a list of the types of behaviors commitment phobics will typically show;

They often choose to travel a lot for work, to play a lot of sport, or be involved in many projects to create distance.

These people know on some level that they are deceptive and cruel to people and often have a lot of guilt and shame about it.

The word “forever” terrifies these people. Love doesn’t scare them; rather it is what love represents to them that scares them. This is due to their negative damaged belief system about love and relationships.

Those who experience Commitment Problems usually end up behaving worse and worse, and they sabotage more and more because they want the other person to end the relationship as they feel too anxious and guilty to do so.

Don’t just take my word for it...

It’s great to have a leading psychologist such as Wendy in the Manchester area, outside of her Harley Street practice. After publicly raising awareness of mental health issues and myself recovering from depression, I know how immensely life-changing expert intervention can be.

Wendy is great at what she does; she made me feel at ease immediately and really helped me work through some issues.

It’s funny but from the minute I met her I felt so relaxed and she was so easy to talk to. Thank you!

I want to thank you Wendy from the bottom of my heart for guiding me through what must have been the most difficult time of my life.

I was told she was the best and they were right.

Although I consider myself a confident person, I was really nervous when I met Wendy for the first time. I had only emailed her before so it was really nerve wracking walking up the stairs to her office. I can honestly say it’s one of the best things I have ever done. Wendy is really normal, no in fact she isn’t normal as she is unfailingly bright and smiley even when she has to listen to me moan on about how awful my life was. It feels like having a chat with somebody who just gets you and you can trust with things you have never trusted anybody else with before. The magic bit comes when things you have talked about just pop up into your head and you start to do things differently. Wendy once joked about not having a magic wand, but I think she has.

I came to Wendy with a set of problems I have never been able to fully explain to anyone, which included grief, many family issues and alcohol problems. Wendy truly has an active listening style and absorbs everything you are saying, whilst not making you feel analysed, it is an incredible skill. She astounded me at how she got to the crux of the issues so fast. So much so that we both agreed I only needed one session with her, obviously this may not be the case with everyone but I would confidently recommend her to anyone, regardless of your problems. There was no awkwardness or even clock watching, she is wonderful at what she does, take the plunge and make an appointment, you will not regret it. Life is a direction not a destination and she will get you on the path again.
