Personality Disorders

An individual’s personality is made up of certain traits, their style of behaviour and distinctive patterns. Personalities help us to form relationships and deal with normal day to day stresses.

People who battle with a personality disorder tend to be less flexible and find any changes to the norm very difficult to deal with. There are various forms of personality disorders including borderline personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, paranoid personality disorder and obsessive compulsive personality disorder.

Psychotherapy is a very useful form of personality disorder treatment which focuses on containment, coping skills and identifying and processing the underlying causes.
