Congratulations! You’ve taken a positive–though difficult–step to regaining your life.
When you’ve been with or were raised by a relentlessly difficult person, a Hijackal™, you need help to restore your sense of self, self-esteem and self-confidence.
I can help you do that, AND make the changes you need to keep Hijackals away from you, too!

Hijackal behavior is crazy-making. It causes you to constantly second-guess and doubt yourself, AND, question your sanity. It feels bad.

It’s time to regain your footing, and banish the fears that Hijackals perpetuate to have control and power over you.  

It’s time to get the experienced professional help you need to make some sense of this muddle,
save your sanity and to stop the crazy-making.

Dr. Rhoberta Shaler, The Relationship Help DoctorI’m Dr. Rhoberta Shaler, The Relationship Help Doctor, and author of Escaping the Hijackal Trap, The Hijackal Trap, and Stop! That’s Crazy-Making.

I know what you’re going through. I’ve been there, done that, and have both the ugly T-shirt and distressing video!

I was raised by an extended family of Hijackals.  Married and divorced from Hijackals. And, now make it my focus to help the partners, exes, and adult children of these relentlessly difficult people save their sanity and stop the crazy-making! I know what it takes to get yourself into a new courageous, confident, empowered mindset while extricating yourself from the clutches–verbal, emotional, mental, and/or physical–of a Hijackal. That could mean changing your strategies to change the relationship, or leaving the Hijackal and working through the labyrinth of courts, co-parenting, and confusion.

What’s a Hijackal? That’s the term I coined for people who hijack relationships–for their own purposes–while relentless scavenging them for power, status, and control. Sound familiar?

Hijackals are charming, manipulative, seductive and exploitative. You know that. You need the new insights, strategies, understanding, and support to

In this advanced program, we’ll walk through the difficult places to replace the thoughts, feelings, needs, and wants that were not giving you the love, respect, trust, honesty, and reliability you want in any relationship in your life. 

Because this is a small group, limited to twelve participants, you’ll have the opportunity to really dig deeply into what you want, and how to get it. Also, because it is a small group, it’s important that you show up for every session to support your group! 

NOTE: This program is for people ready to make significant changes.

If you are just discovering that you are with a Hijackal, I recommend starting with the SEEING THE CYCLES program to fully understand the personality of the person you are dealing with.

Group Coaching is an affordable way to get support with difficult relationships issues, and talk with me, Dr. Rhoberta Shaler, directly. Through group coaching, you can:

  • get your personal relationship questions answered in depth
  • understand the abusive behavior patterns of the Hijackal in your life
  • learn proven strategies for regaining yourself after the extremes of Hijackal behaviors
  • recognize the effects of having been with a Hijackal that you may never have realized
  • learn what is required to keep Hijackals away from you, and to stop being attractive to them
  • have a Facebook group to talk with others in your group between classes
  • strengthen your confidence to be more assertive

If you’ve been raised, roused, or run roughshod over by a Hijackal, you know that you have been alienated by love. It’s time to recognize what’s really going on, and take charge of creating the life and relationships you want and deserve. Now is the best time for that.

I want to help. Let’s talk soon.
