Publisher Description

In her first book in over 10 years, Pia Mellody—author of the groundbreaking bestsellers Facing Codependence and Facing Love Addiction—shares her profound wisdom on what it takes to sustain true intimacy and trusting love in our most vital relationships.

Drawing on more than 20 years' experience as a counsellor at the renowned Meadows Treatment Centre in Arizona, Mellody now shares what she has learned about why intimate relationships falter—and what makes them work. Using the most up–to–date research and real–life examples, including her own compelling personal journey, Mellody provides readers with profoundly insightful and practical ground rules for relationships that achieve and maintain joyous intimacy.

This invaluable resource helps diagnose the causes of faulty relationships—many of them rooted in childhood—and provides tools for readers to heal themselves, enabling them to establish and maintain healthy relationships.

Life-altering

The Intimacy Factor is a life changer! I am only about 30% through the book and I can already say that what is revealed in this book completely illuminates and explains the nuances of intimacy in relationships in language that anyone can understand. Who we are in adult relationships and the kinds of upbringing we had that led to such identities is vividly described in the contents of this book. What this makes possible is a profound new understanding of self in the context of relationship, others in relationship with us, and puts us in the driver's seat of our intimacy in all our relationships. Unbelievable read, an absolute must-read for everyone who interacts with other human beings!
