Borderline Personality Disorder: The key symptoms of Borderline personality disorder are patterns of instability in relationships, self-image and mood, and a high level of impulsivity across contexts. These symptoms can manifest in; an extreme fear of abandonment, a history of chaotic interpersonal relationships, poor sense of self identity, impulsive engagement in self-damaging behaviours, unstable and reactive mood, extreme difficulty managing anger, extreme paranoia and dissociation. As the symptom presentation for Borderline Personality Disorder is quite complex BPD is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood.
Counselling Approach: Greta incorporates a number of treatments with research evidence for their effectiveness in treating BPD in her integrative approach to therapy. These include Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Schema Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Working collaboratively with her clients in a supportive and empathic environment, Greta helps her clients to understand why they use damaging behaviours and supports them to use new more effective ways of functioning.
