Codependency and Dependent Personality Disorder Therapy in Chesterfield

The vast majority of individuals suffering from a psychological disorder may not even be aware there is a problem prevalent in their lives. They have likely become so accustomed to living with their condition, it is now just second nature to simply continue living in the same way. However, there are certain psychological conditions that can lead to an unhealthy and far less-than-perfect way-of-life and this would certainly be the case if you were ever forced to pursue Codependency counseling or therapy for Dependent Personality Disorder.

How Do I Know if I am Suffering from these Conditions?

It’s important to tackle this question sensibly and carefully. Many people may have a rather, shall we say, ‘over-the-top’ dependency on their partner or someone else of real importance in their life and this does not necessarily mean they should pick up the telephone and seek immediate Codependency counseling. This situation may become a real psychological disorder if you are able to identify with any of the following traits:

  • Do you feel as though your very existence is linked to someone else to a considerable extent?
  • Do your emotions depend on how other people are feeling?
  • Are you simply unable to get through your day without constant reassurance from another person?
  • Do you apportion much of the blame for things going wrong in your life to this other person?
  • Are you exceptionally submissive to another individual?

Just to remind you, just because you might feel that you are able to relate to any of the above to a certain extent may not necessarily mean you need therapy for Codependency. It is only if you feel that there is a genuine problem in your life that you should start to investigate this matter further. Also, even if it does transpire to be the case that therapy for these types of psychological disorders would be the best way forward, there is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of and trained professionals may well be able to make a difference in your life.

What Can I Do About this?

Counselors for codependency and Dependent Personality Disorder will be able to help you to identify the issues in your life that may be contributing to a less-than-healthy way-of-life. Together you will find ways to overcome such issues and move forward to lead a life with a clearer understanding of the usual level of dependency on another person in your life.

If you feel you relate to the issues discussed here, why not get in touch for a friendly, stress-free chat when you’re ready?
