Dr Rose Gillett Quals: B Psych (Hons), D Psych (Clin), MAPS
Personality Disorders: Personality disorders generally receive a bad reputation in the community and are seen as chronic or lifelong conditions. Personality issues most often presenting for treatment are Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Histrionic Personality Disorder, and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. I do not often see Avoidant or Antisocial Personality Disorder in a private setting, though I may in an addiction setting.
Counselling Approach: Often clients with a personality disorder are not seeking help for this disorder and may not even be aware it applies to them, I will focus on the issues they are having at present and work on personality concerns in conjunction with living the best life possible. When working with ‘personality’ I prefer to look at the emotional state beneath the symptoms and consider the unconscious defences within the client which are maintaining the personality traits.
