Relationship stress

Are you living with relationship stress? According to a study published in Psychological Science, relationship worries can make you sick. Relationship stress affects your body’s immune response which can lead to disease. Frequently, one or both individuals in a stress-filled relationship will tell me that they have irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia or other autoimmune disease.

Since 1997, Roger Moore’s Counseling & Hypnotherapy LLC has been providing relationship counseling to people on Bainbridge Island, in downtown Seattle and more recently across the U.S. and in several countries online.

In relationship counseling sessions I teach mindfulness based stress reduction techniques, self-hypnosis and communication skills so that you can learn to listen and truly hear your partner. And, I teach you how you can create a healthy relationship with yourself so that you can attract loving people and relationships into your life.

Relationship stress

Inside job

I’ve always maintained that a healthy relationship is an inside job. You can’t have a healthy relationship with anyone until you have one with yourself. A healthy relationship begins with a healthy relationship with yourself. You will never be able to receive enough love, caring or support from anyone else until you give the love, caring and support that you need to yourself.

The anger, hurt, fear or sadness you experience in a relationship is yours – not the other persons. They can’t make you feel what you feel. The anger, hurt, fear and sadness are your opportunities for healing. The person in your life is merely mirroring back to you your own emotional wounds.

Here is a twist for you: Next time you experience upset with someone, don’t blame them – THANK THEM! They just gave you a gift – an opportunity for growth and healing.

If you are ready for growth and healing, give me a call or send me an email.


Relationship Worries Can Make You Sick

HealthDay News, February 22, 2013: Feeling insecure and frequently anxious about your romantic relationship can actually harm your health, new research contends.

The feelings may boost levels of a stress hormone and lower your immune system, according to Ohio State researchers.

In their study, married couples who were often anxious about their relationship — wondering if their partner truly loved them, for example — had higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and lower levels of T-cells, which are important in the immune system to fight off infections, lead author Lisa Jaremka said.
