About Yasmin Shaheen-Zaffar
Helping Busy Professionals Repair Or Break Free From Broken Relationships And Patterns.
Whether you want to build awesome personal relationships or fix broken ones or escape from toxic, damaging ones I can help you. I can't fix them for you - but I will empower you to work towards the result you want. I am very interested in the many types of relationships we have and how they affect our lives.
Problems with relationships in our lives can leave us feeling misunderstood, anxious & depressed. This can be a lonely & isolating place to be in. Whether it be family, friends, neighbours, work or issues such as eating, anger, addiction - we cannot avoid relationships. I can help you build exceptional personal relationships instead.
The trouble is they can be stressful to deal with, especially when trying to work out acceptable boundaries or forgive or trying to repair damaged relationships. We can all at times have intense feelings that we find difficult to control or communicate. Falling into the same old patterns, getting angry & stressed instead. perhaps using aggressive or violent behaviour even as a way to cope.
This often makes things worse & we can end up pushing those we want close to us away. This can be an emotional and confusing time. Some of us turn inwards as a way of coping - towards risky behaviour, self harming or isolating ourselves even.
I Specialise In Supporting Clients Who Want To Build Better Relationships
I am passionate about helping adults and young people grow by increasing their self awareness through helping them understand themselves better. I believe our relationship with "our self" holds the key to many of our issues. Crack this relationship and all else follows - increased confidence, self-belief & empowerment. As a result other relationships get easier.
