Hearts Entwined
How confident do you feel? Do you find it varies depending who you're with? Certain relationships may bolster your self-esteem and others may undermine you. However as Eleanor Roosevelt wisely observed 'No one can make you feel inferior without your consent'.
Indeed it's a measure of your own self-awareness and personal growth how much you depend upon the opinions and approval of others in order to feel good about yourself. The more your self-esteem depends on external factors the more easily you can be influenced by circumstances. 
Healthy relationships will support you in being the best you can be. Unfortunately one of the most common patterns in relationships is co-dependency. This usually means that you feel the need for the other person's approval to be fully yourself. You'll unconsciously suppress certain aspects of your personality - for example you may not explore interests or develop potential that you have - in case someone you care about would feel jealous or threatened. 
If you're wondering whether co-dependent patterns affect you take a look at the quiz developed by Imago Relationship therapist Sabine Young in this month's newsletter and follow her top tips for healthy relationships. Details below. 
If you'd like to identify your relationship patterns and acquire some new skills you could try our Introduction Day on Saturday July 12 or come to our Information Evening on Tuesday July 29. 
If you're a Hoffman graduate and interested in re-experiencing the Process you this is the final call to join our  Graduate - Only Process - July 5-11. We also have a Graduate Support Call - Wednesday July 16th on theme of Being Happy at Work
Wishing you a month of healthy relationships

Hoffman Article - by Imago Relationship Therapist Sabine Young                             Back to Top
Healthy Relationships - Are You Co-dependent?
Co Dependency Co-dependent patterns are usually handed down unconsciously through families. We generally grow up mimicking or in some way reacting to the way that people around us behave without questioning whether it's in our best interests. Relationship and communication skills aren't usually part of the educational curriculum but they are critical to success in our work life as well as to our personal happiness.
Sabine Young is a London based transpersonal psychotherapist. Amongst other things, she specialises in Imago Relationship therapy, addiction and co-dependency. After doing the Process in 1999 she became the Hoffman teacher supervising therapist because, as she says:
'Despite having done many years of personal therapy and countless self-development courses, trainings and spiritual retreats, I found the Process to be an extraordinary experience myself and I have the greatest love and admiration for it. I often refer clients to the course - it's such a powerful resource for a therapist to be aware of.'

Co-Dependency Questionnaire & Top Tips Curious? Then test yourself with this thought-provoking questionnaire which Sabine has designed for newsletter readers ... '

Are you a Hoffman Graduate Serious About Change? 

Hoffman UK team at a gathering in June 2014

Then this is for you... 


If you have done the Hoffman Process you still have the chance to join Matthew, Mairi and Matt from the US on our first Graduate only 7-day Process at Florence House, East Sussex. 
We are very excited to be able to offer this unique opportunity here in the UK this week. In the USA and Brasil they have been offering the 7-day Process for over 6 months and the feedback is fantastic. 
If you find it hard to remember certain aspects of the Process or if you feel that life has moved on and you would benefit from a bit of an MOT then it's not too late to register for the Process starting this Saturday 5th July. We still have a few places and some concessions are available. Please call the office to find out more and book your place on this unique experience. 
'An amazing an invigorated experience, that helped me get back on the road to self-compassion and authenticity. It was as magical and transformative an event as the first process, and allowed me a deeper understanding of many of the Hoffman practices. Once again, the Hoffman Institute changed my life.' US Hoffman Graduate 2014

Why sign up for the Graduate-Only Process?

  • New life circumstances - Challenges that have come after your original Process.
  • 10 years later - Things can change.
  • Moving from one stage of life to another - children, marriage, divorce, moving, career change.
