For Women in Difficult Relationships, Counselor Points the Way to Fulfillment in New Book
After the frenzy of romantic attraction settles down into an everyday relationship, disheartenment often sets in. A common lament from a woman who suddenly discovers selfishness, infidelity, uncommunicativeness or bullying in her man is "What Happened to the Prince I Married?"
Now a book from relationship counselor Sirah Vettese, Ph.D., by that title shows women how to transform their love relationship by first transforming themselves. With endorsements from Marianne Williamson, Deepak Chopra, Susan Jeffers, and Jack Canfield, the book goes deeper than the usual self-help volume to the level where emotionally wrenching change -- and greater happiness -- occurs.
According to Vettese, women can address their mate's fundamental woundedness by first becoming clear on their own true emotional needs and developing self-respect. Even without commitment from the male partner to deep dialogue or therapy, this step in itself often holds the power to shift the dynamics of a relationship.
Vettese bolsters the case for this thesis by recounting the painful journey of growth she initiated with her husband, and with cases from her psychotherapy practice. She addresses many of the causes of pain in relationships, and through original exercises, "heart prayers," diagnosis and advice, facilitates insight and relationship breakthroughs. Vettese also reveals how to use mutual vulnerabilities for fulfilling sexual passion and loving intimacy.
Many women today find themselves living with men who are shut-down, unresponsive, short-tempered, aggressive, uncommunicative, unloving or unfaithful. This book shows them how to recreate their relationship into a more satisfying and fulfilling one. By revealing how she transformed her own volatile marriage into one of mutual love and respect, Dr. Sirah Vettese inspires women to achieve new levels of commitment to their own growth.
