There are many different types of relationship attachment styles that counselors in Orlando see and work with both in couples and individual counseling. Regardless of how a relationship may be going, the type of attachment you require may be keeping the relationship from ending because of how powerful this style is. Couples' counselors in Orlando see the anxious attachment style as a common form that keeps individuals from exiting a relationship when their needs, wants, desires, and wishes, are not being respected by the partner.
Some may think couples counseling in Orlando would be the best way to remedy this however men’s and women’s therapy in Orlando is the best fit as it will be centralized around anxiety therapy. An anxious attachment style is where you may be staying in a relationship making excuses for a partner’s behavior, or even hoping that you are willing and able to change them due to having anxiety around the concept of being alone. This anxiety overwhelms and engulfs the person into a cycle of thinking that if they are not in a relationship then they will be destined to be alone.
Anxiety counselors in Orlando challenge this by showing the evidence to support leaving the relationship and counteracting the anxious thinking and thought process through thought stopping and reframing. Being in a committed relationship is something that every person, ideally, strives for in their life and it is something that can bring a unique style of happiness to the individual. Having an anxious attachment style limits oneself from seeing everything you can offer the world and has you settle, sacrifice, and give up exactly what you need and want for the sake of being in a relationship.
Choice theory, cognitive-behavioral, and dialectical behavioral therapies are all great tools to rewrite and alter this attachment style so that you no longer need to settle but are given the respect in a relationship that you deserve.
