Description

A book for people who lose themselves in relationships. Do you try to please your partner at all costs? Do you sabotage yourself in relationships? Do you find it hard to break up and move on? Does the perfect relationship keep eluding you? Do you keep going out with the wrong person? Do relationships always end in heartache? You are not alone. Psychologist John Aiken has been observing people who 'give themselves up in relationships' for most of his professional life and has some hard-hitting advice: make your own needs a priority, then you will be able to enjoy life with your partner. U-Turn will challenge you to take a good look at yourself and your patterns of behaviour so that you finally gain a relationship that works.
