From discovering more about yourself or whether you have a long standing or recent fear of intimacy, counselling by its very nature of a therapeutic relationship is a good way to start looking at this issue. Comon behaviours of a fear of intimacy in relationships can be:
-discomfort expressing emotions (positive or negative).
-avoidance of situations where you may have to express emotions.
-fear of being alone. Paradoxically, being afraid to be alone may mean you don’t want to deal with your emotions and so find distractions.
-difficulty asking for help.
These behaviours can have wide reaching effects on your personal and even work life. Counselling can help uncover where this fear comes from and ways to both cope and learn to be more trusting and intimate. The client/therapist relationship is one which has trust at its very core. Due to this, it is an ideal vehicle to learn trusting behaviours.
