For mental health professionals, narcissistic personality disorder has a range of diagnostic and clinical challenges that need to be addressed in order to treat this condition effectively. At the Energetics Institute, we offer Narcissism Counselling Services in Perth that are an effective treatment for Narcissistic Personality Disorders and all of the associated narcissistic traits.
Social media and the promotion of the self as a brand to be promoted as special, important and to be “liked” by others, is leading to unhealthy narcissistic traits and personality disorders developing in many people in society.
What Is Narcissism?
A narcissistic personality disorder or Narcissism as its most commonly referred to results in an unhealthy obsession with oneself. This results in a spectrum of behaviour ranging from indifference towards others, right up to emotional, mental, physical and sexual exploitation and abuse of others.
Narcissism is a conscious application of extreme selfish preoccupations with themselves and the person’s own needs. They see others as only existing and being of interest when they have some form of utility value to that person, such that once the Narcissistic person gains what the other person has that is of interest, they discard that person with indifference and callous coldness.
people who are suffering from a narcissistic personality disorder feel special, have an inflated sense of entitledness and superiority and are ruthless in their exploitation of others for self-gain. They consciously lie, deceive, cheat, seduce, manipulate others to gain some benefit, and are often aggressive via threats, as they lack a moral compass and have no empathy or compassion towards those they hurt traumatise, use, abuse or deceive.
Narcissistic people create a false self to both deceive and impress others at the same time. They will dress the best, gravitate towards successful, rich or important others, and then brag and claim they too are successful when in fact they often have a past that involves crime, moral crime, deceit, traumatised or betrayal of ex-partners in business or romance.
Narcissism shows itself in behaviours and appearance as the false self that is at the heart of their deception, is one that follows the self-importance, special and powerful presence they are always trying to project.
