A personality is the make up of an individual and it refers to a person’s thought patterns, feelings and behaviours. Ultimately, it is what makes us unique.
The things we experience through life from childhood onwards really shape who we are and some situations can impact us long term more than others.
As we grow and change, so do our circumstances and this allows us to learn and change our behaviour so that we are able to cope with situations more efficiently in the future.
Sometimes our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours can become very difficult to change, and often this can result in our emotions and behaviours becoming very limited. People can become unable to cope with situations they once dealt with in everyday life.
You could be suffering from a personality disorder if you are noticing your personality difficulties are beginning to affect you and those closest to you. Having a personality disorder has some stigma attached to it within mental health.
Below are three of the most commonly known personality disorders:
Anti-Social Personality Disorders
Borderline Personality Disorders
Narcissistic Personality Disorders
We can undertake assessments of individual symptoms and provide support throughout the process. The options for treatment are medication as well as talking therapies.
