What is a personality concern? Or personality disorder?

A personality concern, or personality disorder, is an area of focus in psychology that involves studying and comprehending individual differences in patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. Personality encompasses a wide range of characteristics that contribute to what makes each person unique, including interests, drives, values, behaviors, abilities, and emotional patterns. However, when thoughts and behaviors become consistently imbalanced over the long term, appearing unhealthy and inflexible, they can lead to problems in various aspects of life, such as work and relationships, ultimately resulting in personality disorders.

What is Bipolar disorder? 

Attachment trauma is a type of early relational trauma which happens when the healthy bond formation between a baby or child and their primary caregiver is disrupted. A strong attachment is built when caregivers consistently provide comfort, affection, and meet basic needs. However, a lack of affection or abusive behavious can result in attachment trauma.

We are here to educate, understand and help address attachment trauma as it is crucial for healthy relationships and emotional well-being.

What is Narcissistic personality disorder?

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a mental health condition characterized by a pattern of grandiosity, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of empathy for others. Individuals with NPD often have an inflated sense of self-importance, a constant desire for attention and validation, and a tendency to exploit others for their own gain. They may appear charming and confident on the surface, but underneath, they often harbor deep-seated feelings of insecurity and vulnerability.

What is Paranoid personality disorder and what causes it?

Paranoid personality disorder (PPD) leads to pervasive distrust and suspicion of others, often without any logical basis. Individuals with PPD tend to interpret innocent actions or remarks as evidence of malicious intent, leading to difficulties in forming and maintaining relationships, and functioning effectively in society. The causes of PPD are believed to be a combination of genetic, biological, and environmental factors. Childhood experiences such as trauma or neglect, as well as a family history of PPD or other mental health disorders, may contribute to its development. 

What is Schizoid personality disorder?

Schizoid personality disorder (SPD) is a condition characterized by a persistent pattern of detachment from social relationships and a limited range of emotional expression. Individuals with SPD often prefer solitude and introspection over social interaction and may appear indifferent to praise, criticism, or the emotions of others.

While genetic factors may play a role, environmental influences such as childhood experiences of neglect or emotional detachment could also contribute to its development. This personality disorder can significantly impact an individual’s ability to form and maintain meaningful relationships and may lead to social isolation and functional impairment. Treatment typically involves psychotherapy aimed at helping individuals develop social skills, enhance self-awareness, and explore the underlying emotions that contribute to their detachment. 

What is Schizoid personality disorder?

This disorder often leads to preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and control. Individuals with OCPD often have rigid beliefs about how things should be done and may be overly focused on details, to the extent that it interferes with their ability to complete tasks efficiently or maintain healthy relationships. Unlike Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which involves intrusive, unwanted thoughts and repetitive behaviors, OCPD primarily involves personality traits that are ego-syntonic, meaning they are consistent with the individual’s self-perception.
