Lots of women come and see me about relationship issues and I hear a lot about particular relationships have ended. Why do I always follow the same pattern? Why am I always attracted to people that display these kinds of characteristics? Freud has a lovely theory on that called repetition compulsion. So essentially what it looks at is that we all have various deficits from our childhood. But for some people, there's a need to find partners that can repeat those deficits in adulthood. So that we can feel if we've managed to have a different outcome, we've repaired all the wounds in us. So I think for me that understanding really works. There's a sense of being pulled towards things that we know might not be good for us, and I think the way counselling can help that is to really highlight that process so that you become very aware of it. My belief is, the more self-awareness we have, the more we can let go of the idea of that's just who we are, but actually we have a choice in it.
