Our expert says:
Other than being loving and reasssuring, there is very little that you can actually 'do' - if your partner is anxious, then she needs to address her concerns herself - that may with you or with a therapist (the latter is not essential, it just depends on what you partner thinks she needs). Be very cautious about how you discuss this with her - it can so easily look like a criticism (and this is an area many people are "touchy" about - mind the pun), so if you phrase it as her seeming 'frightened or vulnerable' rather than 'not confident or dominant enough', she might be able to hear it better and might be willing to explore it.
