Personality Disorders

Personality disorders are a group of mental health conditions characterized by enduring patterns of thought, emotion, behavior, and interpersonal functioning that deviate from cultural expectations and are maladaptive. These patterns of behavior and thinking are inflexible and lead to significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other areas of functioning.

Some of the most commonly recognized personality disorders include:

  • Borderline Personality Disorder: characterized by impulsive behavior, intense and unstable relationships, distorted sense of self, and extreme emotions.
  • Narcissistic Personality Disorder: characterized by a grandiose sense of self-importance, a preoccupation with fantasies of power and success, a lack of empathy, and an exaggerated sense of entitlement.
  • Antisocial Personality Disorder: characterized by a persistent pattern of disregard for the rights of others, manipulation and violation of others for personal gain, and a lack of remorse for harmful behavior.
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder: characterized by an excessive need for order, perfectionism, and control, as well as an inflexible adherence to rules and routines.
  • Schizoid Personality Disorder: characterized by a pervasive pattern of detachment from social relationships, a lack of emotional expression, and a preference for solitary activities.

Treatment for personality disorders typically involves long-term therapy, often including psychotherapy, medication, and other forms of support. The goal of treatment is to help individuals understand their patterns of behavior and thought, develop new coping strategies, and improve relationships and functioning.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
