Joey Tai Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.
Personality Disorders: Narcissistic Personality Disorder affects 1% of the population. The term Narcissistic is originally derived from the mythical character Narcissus, who saw his own reflection in the river and fell in love with himself as a result. He was fixated on himself and his own beauty and thus was unable to have any meaningful relationships with anyone else.
People who have Narcissistic Personality Disorders are similar – they have a preoccupation with themselves, and their focus is on maintaining their perfect perception of themselves. They come across as extremely entitled or grandiose; and will constantly put others down, with little or no ability to empathise. This is of course, highly dysfunctional and unrealistic and in turn, will impact anyone who tries to start or maintain a relationship with them.
Counselling Approach: Joey Tai is a Clinical Psychologist with extensive knowledge in the area of Narcissistic Personality Disorder – one of the diagnoses which a majority of psychologists regularly avoid treating. He has a keen interest in working with people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, or with supporting those who are living with or having to interact with such an individual on a regular basis. Joey aims to help you to understand more about the underlying factors which cause someone to have this personality type, as well as how to improve your relationship.
