Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
You had hit the nail on the head. I just would like to know what is the best way to encourage her to seek counseling for herself. She is so used to be in this type of relationship with this man that she fails to realize how dangerous these incidents truly have been. Please advice me on the best approach for the family to follow with her without sounding bossy or pushy. Thank you in advance.
You may be right by suggesting counseling to help her and her daughters deal with the separation. But another concern we have is that her husband calls her every day 2-3 per day and she talks to him for long periods of time. Is this a good idea for her to allow him to have so much access to her? I feel that if she continues to let him into her head, she might have a harder time cutting him off completely. She says she does not want to get by with him, but she feels bad for him. Any advice?
Thank you, Ryan
