Working in Wilmslow and London I have an abnormally high incidence of infidelity problems to deal with. There are lots of reasons why this could be, but one of them seems to be that women in particular rely on their looks to stop their partner ‘cheating’. We’ve all seen ‘Cheshire housewives’ and the London equivalent and whilst its useful to bear in mind that they ‘camp’ it up for the cameras, it really highlights the ethos that it’s the way you look that will ensure a good relationship. It’s really difficult to hear a woman who has been married for 25 years suggest that a way to stop her husband continuously cheating on her is to get liposuction. I cringe when I hear about teenagers having ‘boob’ jobs and obsessing about their looks as its all helping to reinforce the idea that it’s their looks that are most important. Every woman of a ‘certain’ age you see tottering around on death defying heels with enough Botox and fillers to sink a ship, is a woman who thinks that it’s only her looks that have given her success.
Ladies, if you rely only on your appearance to hold your relationship together, or get you the man of your dreams, you’re in for a nasty surprise.
If any of this rings true for you, then stop yourself booking that extra personal training and try spending your money on finding out more about you. When I say more about you, what I actually mean is more about what makes you special, what do other people really value about you? Are you really happy in your relationship and is your partner? Think about it, if your partner is genuinely happy in the relationship, why would he want to cheat on you with somebody else, even if they are a bit slimmer, taller, younger and risk losing a great relationship?

It’s great to have a leading psychotherapist such as Wendy in the Cheshire 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.
