Clinical psychologist Audrey Katsidzira says you need to meet your own needs in a relationship first.

South Africa’s unemployment rate is one of the highest in the world and unemployment places an enormous strain on relationships and family dynamics.

Losing an income within a family structure is a challenge and it takes its toll on one's partner and family members.

Eusebius McKaiser speaks to clinical psychologist in private practice and founding consultant at You Plus Wellness Audrey Katsidzira about the impact of unemployment on relationships.

It is not easy. It cannot be easy at all.

Audrey Katsidzira, Clinical psychologist

Audrey Katsidzira, Clinical psychologist

Audrey Katsidzira, Clinical psychologist

Katsidzira says you need to meet your own needs in a relationship.
