Answers to Your Questions About Personality Disorder Counseling – Therapists in Charlotte

If you’re considering a new coach or counselor for your personality disorder then you likely have many questions. Here you’ll find answers to the most common questions from clients.

Can personality disorders be treated?

The truth is that fifty years ago the medical profession believed there was no way to help people with specific personality disorders. Today we know that there are many ways to help. You may need both medication and talk therapy or just one of these solutions.

Are personality disorders unusual?

Not at all. According to one study by the American Psychological Association, almost one-third of people who sought treatment for mental health issues was diagnosed with a personality disorder.

How many types of personality disorders are there?

There are many personality disorders. Generally, they’re grouped into three clusters: disorders that cause anxious or fearful behaviors, disorders that cause dramatic, erratic, and / or emotional behaviors, and disorders that cause eccentric or odd behaviors.

What’s the first treatment step?

The first step is asking for help. Once you’ve reached out to a counselor they’ll carefully assess your situation and come up with a treatment plan. For many patients, the first step is getting emotions under control. This can be done with a variety of therapy options, medications, or both.

What are “core beliefs”?

If you’ve done any research into counseling for personality disorders you’ve likely heard of “core beliefs,” which are common to people with these disorders. Essentially, this term refers to beliefs a person holds that are unshakeable even when they have concrete evidence that the beliefs aren’t valid. Part of your counselor’s job is to help clients work through these beliefs.
