Personality Disorder Counselling

Personality disorders are a group of conditions that range in symptoms and severity. Treatment for a personality disorder will vary depending on the individual’s needs and access to certain therapies. In some parts of the country access to certain therapies on the NHS is very sparse. 

Here we have counsellors in your area that specialise or have experience in the treatment of personality disorders. 

It is very important to get an accurate diagnosis if you are struggling with symptoms of a personality disorder as treatment will vary depending upon your diagnosis. While some more severe symptoms of some personality disorders will require medication, talking therapies have been particularly useful across the whole spectrum of disorders. 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and individual counselling, has been proven effective for the treatment of personality disorders. Group therapies are also recommended for some sufferers. Use our list below to find a professional in your area.

Many of the therapists listed here have introductory rates for the first session, some even have a free introduction, in order for you to get to know the therapist and get acquainted with their approach before you commit to therapy. It is very important to build a relationship of trust with a counsellor, and to have a clear understanding of what will be achieved by undertaking therapy.

For information about the conditions please see our personality disorders section, which includes free guides and resources.
