Codependency and Dependent Personality Disorder Therapy in Knoxville

Anyone living with a chronic psychological condition will fully appreciate just how debilitating this can be on their everyday life. Codependency and Dependent Personality Disorder are types of psychological conditions which fall under the umbrella term of Anxious Personality Disorders. They are connected with an unhealthy dependency on another person in their life in order for the sufferer to feel validated and able to function. Codependency counseling and therapy for Dependent Personality Disorder may well prove to be beneficial to anyone who believes they are suffering from such a psychological disorder.

Typical Traits to be Aware of

If you are able to recognize any of the following traits in yourself, it may well be the case that codependency counseling will be of benefit to you:

  • Do you depend on others for your own emotional wellbeing?
  • Do you live to serve the needs of others to an unhealthy extent?
  • Do you find that you need excessive reassurance from another person in order to get through everyday life?
  • Are you submissive toward another person to an extent that may be unnatural?
  • Do you find yourself blaming the person you are dependent on for all the negative aspects of your life?

If you feel that you are able to resonate with any of the bullet-points above, there is a possibility that therapy for a Dependent Personality Disorder might prove to be the answer for you.

Identifying that You Need Help

As with all psychological disorders, it is important to remember that people with conditions such as Codependency and Dependent Personality Disorder may not necessarily even know that there is a problem in the first place. After all, it is most likely that they have been living with the condition for their entire lives and such types of behavior may seem completely acceptable and ‘normal’ to them.

We fully appreciate just how difficult that first step can be when it comes to seeking therapy for Codependency and Dependent Personality Disorder. With this in mind, if you do feel there is a possible problem at play here, feel free to get in contact with us today to schedule that all-important first session.
