There are many personality disorders and each presents its own challenges in understanding the sources and developing successful treatment plans. The American Psychiatric Association lists ten specific personality disorders in the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual): paranoid, schizoid, schizotypal, antisocial, borderline, histrionic, narcissistic, avoidant, dependent and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.
Whether you are suffering from one of these disorders, or more likely have someone in your life who is suffering and is affecting you, I can help. These disorders have clear diagnostic criteria, and there are many therapeutic techniques and approaches which have proven effective in helping patients and their loved ones.
My holistic approach to counselling takes into consideration the effect on and by others in your social network to help understand which approach and coping strategies are best for you.
