Meet Our Team Of Personality Disorder Psychiatrists

Overview

Counselling can help an individual with a personality disorder understand the disorder, their associated thoughts and feelings, and how they interfere with their daily life functioning. Often, people with personality disorders have abnormal behaviours and thoughts that interfere with their functioning. The type of personality disorder determines the nature of thoughts and behaviours. A counsellor can help the person not only identify these dysfunctional ways of thinking and behaving but also help replace them with more constructive ways thereby improving their quality of life.
Medications are not prescribed for the symptoms of personality disorders, however can be quite useful in helping the individual deal with any other co-morbid mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety disorders, or psychosis. Moreover, counselling with or without medications is always the go-to treatment option for dealing with a personality disorder. A counsellor may employ various therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which focuses on changing negative ways of thinking and behaving and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) which focuses on helping patients learn emotional regulation skills, distress tolerance, and mindfulness.
