Navigating the waters: Communicating with an avoidant partner  
by Dr Aisha Tariq, Clinical Psychologist 

In the intricate dance of relationships, communication is the key that unlocks understanding, trust, and connection.

Avoidant individuals tend to prioritise independence and may struggle with emotional intimacy. Navigating this dynamic requires patience, empathy, and a willingness to understand the unique needs of your partner.
