Codependency Counselling

Codependency is a common buzzword that usually refers to the fact that we are relying too much on someone else, rather than being independent. In actuality, there are many ways to define co-dependency and it is quite common, occurring in approximately 97% of people. 

The most broad definition of co-dependency is when we rely on, assume responsibility for or enable another person's actions, additions, mental health.  

Recognizing a co-dependent relationship can be tricky because there is no easy checklist or assessment tool. If you're questioning whether or not you are co-dependent, you likely are and you've come to the right place.

If you'd like to learn how therapy can assist you in freeing yourself from co-dependency, keep reading or contact our Care Coordinator to schedule your free consultation.

At the Journey Counselling and Psychotherapy, our approach to Co-Dependency Therapy is tailored to you and your individual needs.

Recognizing that you are or may be co-dependent can be incredibly overwhelming and isolating. It can also be incredibly difficult to figure out what next. Seeking the guidance of a therapist to help navigate these new and uncomfortable feelings may be just what you need to pause and figure out your next steps. 

If you are living with someone who is actively in addiction or struggling with mental illness, it can be unsafe to start your journey to autonomy alone. Having someone walk alongside you as you find your strength is imperative. Seeking the support of a therapist online to help with codependency can help you become connected and less isolated, while still remaining safe in your environment. 

When you are ready, you can book a consultation here, or fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page to get connected with a therapist. 

In that first call, our Care Coordinator will ask you some questions to help match you with the therapist that is best suited for your care. She will answer any questions you may have, and walk you through the intake process. Remember, you only have to share what you're comfortable sharing. 

During your first sessions with your therapist, your therapist as well to ensure you feel safe and together you therapist will determine what you would like to discuss and what you would like support with. 

Some times of interventions that can help with codependency include:

  • Cognitive Behvaioural Therapy 

  • Emotion Focused Therapy 

  • Acceptance Commitment Therapy

  • Narrative Therapy

  • Solution Focused Therapy


We firmly believe that therapy is only successful when you find the right therapist. It is our commitment to you, to ensure you feel safe and supported throughout the process. If you have any questions about how online codependency counselling may work, please contact us. We’re here to help.
