Healthy relationships, including the relationship with yourself, are essential in life and at times that doesn't happen. Each person's story and experience is unique and over the years I have discovered the impact and etiology of toxic personality styles has on intimate relationships, family relationships, friendships and workplace relationships. Learning about toxic people may not change what they do but you will change how you work through it and not allow it to affect your quality of life.
Maria will share insights and tools on why we attract toxic partners, how to differentiate between unhealthy and healthier partners, attachment styles, communication, thought patterns,and boundaries so you can rebuild yourself to attract and retain healthy relationships.
