Melbourne Counselling offers highly experienced psychologists that specialise in the treatment of personality disorders and borderline personality disorder (BPD).
Numerous disorders of personality can be experienced given the wide range of human experience and problems of caregiving from an early age. While many do not necessarily meet the criteria for a specific diagnosis, there may be problematic personality traits that need addressing, such as social avoidance, persistent emotional instability, narcissism, or strong needs for control. A proper clinical interview of personality disorder can often determine the types of traits that may need clarifying and identify the best treatment method for personality disorders. Contact us to see how we can help with your diagnosis and address your disorder in a supportive and caring environment.
A common question as a psychologist we regularly get asked is ‘how do I know if I need to see a psychologist?’ It is a good question and one that should be answered with respect and integrity. The best way to know if you would benefit from seeing a psychologist is when signs and symptoms begin to interfere with day-to-day functioning. It is recommended to seek help when relationships, friendships, and work-life become too hard because symptoms are getting in the way.
