About the Author
In When Loving Him Hurts, expert psychologist Sue Hickey takes you on a deep and inner healing journey through the experiences of her long-term client, Philippa Sklaar, who was in three abusive relationships before she understood that the healing had to begin with herself and not the relationship. It contains their combined insights, as well as the stories of women who have walked this long and painful road. Sue Hickey, has run a private counseling practice for almost thirty years during which time she has counseled hundreds of women and couples through reconciliations, divorces and more importantly, journey’s of self discovery and self empowerment. She has run support groups for abused women and for women who seek to live a life with more depth and reflection. Philippa Sklaar, an American is a domestic abuse survivor and knows only too well the struggle of why we “don’t just leave”. It took three abusive marriages (her second was physically abusive) to finally learn that the solution lay with herself. It was too simple an answer to blame the men. She hopes that by sharing her journey she can facilitate the recovery of other women.

For the first time, I could see through my wife's eyes, how she was feeling.
Not only that, but I exchanged the concept of "the abused wife" to "the abused child who is now an adult man", and the key opened the locked safe to what had happened to me as a child. So I started to understand WHY I do what I do now to my wife, and am able to take ownership of my dysfunctional behavior, and start healing myself.
