Need to find someone to support me dealing with unresolved issues

I (M56)have standard, don’t seem that bad to me, issues from what I have slowly come to accept as a mostly neglectful upbringing. Things like fawning, people pleasing, anxiety behavior has been just who I thought I was, and I’ve just accepted the limitations it brings. But it’s costing my partner (F49) in our day to day interactions, and I need to find a way to improve my communication and relating. She has been very helpful showing me how things have gotten to where they are, and where it comes from. But I can’t keep relying on her. So I’m hoping to find a form of ongoing support so I can stay with it, without it weighing on her shoulders. Has anybody in a similar situation found a good way of finding someone? Or made some mistakes others can learn from?
