Insomnia and nightmares reveals fear of comittment and intimacy

By

Here are a couple of success stories from grateful clients

“ I used to have intense relationships for short periods of time and then cool off for no reason. If the woman was not serious I worked hard to get her to want me but it never worked. I felt rejected. If a woman showed a lot of interest in me, it would put me off and I would end things. I never understood why this kept happening and frankly it was really frustrating. I was beginning to think that I would never have a comfortable long term relationship. It was after a really bad break up that I found Dr. Raymond and she helped me figure out what was going on. Just as I thought I was getting a handle on understanding my fears, I fell deeply in love. It seemed that everything was falling into place and I couldn’t have been happier. Until those fears started bugging me again. They stopped me from sleeping and gave me nightmares. Dr. Raymond helped me understand them in real time , so I didn’t run away again. I was able to stay in the relationship and overcome my fear of losing something I treasured.” Thirty-seven year old engineer.
