Difficulty in setting boundaries, whether in personal or professional relationships, can be emotionally taxing and create a sense of powerlessness that can lead to resentment. Saying ‘no’ or establishing limits may feel scary, especially if you tend to avoid conflict and prioritize others’ needs over your own. Learning to set boundaries is a process and often times when people set boundaries for the first time they are uncomfortable and constantly worried what others will feel or do when they set boundaries leading to ruminating thoughts and general unease. Boundaries serve as essential markers of self-respect and mutual respect in relationships and are necessary in forming healthy bonds.

Our emotions can take us on a ride: we feel things such as fear, sadness, regret, anger, jealousy, and frustration cycling through us.

Are you constantly asking yourself how you could have missed the signs of abuse? Why you were treated that way and how you will recover from the trauma and learn to trust again?

Narcissists can have a lasting impact on your self-esteem, confidence, and overall mental health. Victims of narcissistic abuse often find themselves caught in a whirlwind of emotions, ranging from confusion and shame to guilt and isolation. The manipulative tactics employed by narcissistic abusers can leave victims questioning their reality and doubting their worth. They struggle with intense feelings of fear, depression, and anxiousness, anticipating the next outburst or attack, while also dealing with loneliness and isolation as they are systematically cut off from support systems. Even after the relationship has ended the effects of a heightened nervous system remain leaving you walking on egg shells and afraid to trust again. Narcissistic abuse counseling can help validate your experiences, identify the patterns of abuse you’ve experienced, process trauma, develop healthy boundaries, and be a resource for rebuilding your self-esteem and identity.

Do you find yourself often feeling superior to others or struggling to empathize with their emotions?

While the term “narcissist” is trending in society, it’s essential to recognize that not everyone fits this label. While some individuals may occasionally exhibit narcissistic traits, it’s important to distinguish between these behaviours and the consistent patterns associated with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). These include grandiosity, lack of empathy, and entitlement. By understanding this difference, we can avoid unfairly labeling individuals and ensure that those genuinely struggling with NPD receive the appropriate support and treatment they need.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is characterized by individuals having an extremely inflated sense of self, feelings that they are better or superior to others, a need for attention, a sense of entitlement, and a lack of empathy for others. A lot of people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder engage in thse behaviours because they lack self-esteem and are unable to handle even a small amount of criticism. They deflect accountability and cannot validate others experiences if it goes against their own constructed realities. Therapy can be a valuable resource for individuals with NPD to explore their thoughts, behaviours, and emotions. Through therapy, individuals can develop healthier coping mechanisms, improve their relationships, and cultivate empathy and emotional regulation skills.

Working with a therapist can lead to greater self-awareness and understanding, ultimately fostering personal growth and healthy connections with others.

Do you experience intrusive and unwanted thoughts, images, or impulses? Do these lead to you engaging in repetitive behaviours or mental acts to curb anxiety?

With OCD, people are compelled to perform behaviours despite knowing their thoughts are irrational. Emotionally, the toll of OCD can be overwhelming, with feelings of guilt, shame, and inadequacy weighing heavily on the mind. The constant need to perform rituals can leave individuals feeling trapped and powerless, while the fear of judgment from others contributes to their isolation. Physically, OCD can manifest in exhaustion, as individuals expend so much energy trying to appease their obsessive thoughts and compulsions making even the simplest tasks feel overwhelming and take twice as long. Therapy provides a safe space to confront fears, challenge thought patterns and rituals, and develop healthier coping mechanisms. Individuals can learn to manage their anxiety and reclaim their sense of peace and autonomy.

Do you or your child experience persistent patterns of anger, irritability, or are consistently sparking arguments with people in authority?

These behaviours are associated with ODD and typically begin in childhood leading to difficulties at home, in school, or within social circles. Individuals with ODD may frequently clash with parents, teachers, or other authority figures, disrupting daily routines and straining relationships. Beyond typical childhood defiance, ODD behaviours interfere significantly with daily functioning, including constant arguing, temper tantrums, and refusal to comply with rules or requests. Blaming others, acting out of spite, and deliberately annoying others are also common. Living with ODD can evoke a range of emotions, both for the individual and their caregivers. The constant conflict may lead to feelings of frustration, helplessness, and confusion. For the individual with ODD, there may be underlying feelings of anger, resentment, or insecurity fueling their defiant behaviour.

Therapy can help individuals with ODD process emotions and develop healthy problem-solving skills. Therapy is also helpful for family members or guardians of an individual with ODD by helping them understand behaviours and develop skills to set appropriate limits and boundaries while maintaining a nurturing and structured environment.

Do you often find yourself holding incredibly high expectations and feeling as though nothing you do is ever quite good enough?

Perfectionism manifests as an ongoing challenge, compelling individuals to establish unreachable standards for themselves, resulting in self-criticism and anxiety. Those struggling with perfectionism often feel intense pressure to achieve flawlessness in everything they do, leading to a never-ending cycle of self-evaluation and fear of judgment from others. They feel like they should be constantly improving and are never enough.

This pursuit of perfection can be exhausting and overwhelming. It can impact your self-esteem and result in anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder tendencies, and even burnout. Therapy can help you feel relief from the burden of perfectionism. Learn to embrace imperfection and increase self-compassion by developing a deeper understanding of yourself and challenging the unrealistic standards set. Increase your self love and confidence and feel empowered to embrace a healthier more accepting mindset.

Do you have a long-term pattern of unhelpful and dysfunctional behaviours, thoughts, or feelings?

Personality disorders can warp your sense of self, leading to impulsive actions and a constant struggle with your identity. Individuals struggling with this often feel disconnected and lost in confusion and uncertainty about who they truly are and what they want out of life. This distorted self-perception can increase feelings of inadequacy, worthlessness, and even self-loathing. Emotionally, it’s like riding a rollercoaster, with intense highs and crushing lows, leaving little room for stability. Impulsivity becomes a way of coping, driven by a desperate need for immediate relief from emotional turmoil and consequences of quick reactions.

The consequences can include social isolation, substance abuse, and self-harm leaving you feeling hopelessness and distress. Examples of personality disorders include paranoid, schizoid, schizotypal, antisocial, borderline, histrionic, narcissistic, avoidant, dependent, and obsessive-compulsive.

Regardless of the type of personality disorder you have or think you may have, therapy can help you develop a more positive self-image, improve your relationships, and work towards personal goals. We are here to help you navigate the impact of your personality disorder so you can live the life you want.

Have you found it hard to live a “normal life” after experiencing abuse?

The effects of abuse run deep, leaving a profound impact on both your emotional well-being and daily functioning. It’s not just about the physical scars; it’s the emotional turmoil that follows.Healing is no longer a time factor and involves navigating complex emotions. Victims of this type of trauma often experience feelings of guilt, shame, depression, anger, fear, and isolation. They constantly battle feelings of guilt, as if somehow the abuse was their fault while feeling unworthy or unlovable. Others can experience anger that simmers beneath the surface, fueled by the injustice of what happened to you. These emotions don’t just stay confined to your mind; they seep into every aspect of your life. Trust becomes a rare commodity, making it difficult to form close relationships or rely on others for support. Day-to-day tasks can feel overwhelming, as anxiety and fear cloud your judgment and drain your energy.

Therapy can be a powerful tool for helping you heal from abuse. We can provide a safe space for you to process difficult emotions and experiences, and help create strategies for managing anxiety, developing self-esteem, and learning how to set boundaries and form healthier relationships.

Am I doing this right? Am I cut out for this?

Feeling overwhelmed with worry or fear after welcoming your baby? You’re not alone. It’s common to feel some level of anxiety as a new parent, but for some, this anxiety can intensify into what’s called postpartum anxiety, which often doesn’t get as much attention as the more recognized, postpartum depression.

You might wonder, “Is my anxiety normal, or is it something more?” Signs that your anxiety might be crossing the line include feeling constantly on edge, struggling to relax even when there’s no immediate danger, finding everyday tasks overwhelming, avoiding leaving the house or interacting with others for fear of something bad happening, changes in your appetite or sleep patterns, racing thoughts that won’t go away, or physical symptoms like nausea and dizziness.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by sadness, guilt, or struggling to connect with your baby?

The journey into motherhood is an incredible experience, but it’s also filled with unexpected challenges. Sometimes, these challenges can manifest into what’s known as postpartum depression. It’s often described as a more intense and persistent version of the “baby blues,” lingering far longer than expected.

Postpartum depression brings a wave of emotions that can feel impossible to navigate. You might find yourself in a constant state of sadness, shedding tears more often than usual. Feelings of guilt and worthlessness may weigh heavily making every day feel like an uphill battle. And despite your best efforts, bonding with your baby might not come as naturally as you’d hoped, leaving you questioning your abilities as a mother. Adapting to the demands of caring for a newborn can heighten these feelings. Suddenly, your days are no longer your own, and even simple tasks like showering or eating become luxuries. The constant demands of motherhood leave you feeling drained and exhausted, wishing for the simplicity of your pre-baby life.

Postpartum depression can strike in the first few months after giving birth, but it can also develop gradually over time. There are many factors that contribute to postpartum depression, from hormonal changes and sleep deprivation to the adapting of new routines and family dynamics. Environmental stressors such as lack of social support or financial strain can also play a significant role.

Are you or someone you know experiencing frequent distortions of reality, hallucinations, or delusions?

Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders can take over the mind, perceptions, emotional responsiveness, and overall functioning. These conditions often blur the lines between what’s real and what’s not. Whether auditory, visual, or physical, hallucinations can manifest with startling clarity, often hard to differentiate from genuine real-life sensory input. Meanwhile, delusions take hold, convincing individuals of ideas and alternate realities that defy logic and reason.

Living with schizophrenia or another psychotic disorder is a constant challenge. Small tasks can morph into larger-than-life obstacles, leaving individuals feeling overwhelmed and disempowered. Fear and confusion become constant companions as the boundary between reality and illusion dissolve. Social isolation occurs for fear of external judgment and feeling like no one can understand the complexities of these disorders.

With appropriate treatment modalities such as medication, therapy, and comprehensive support networks, individuals can learn to effectively manage their symptoms. Seeking early intervention and following consistent care regimens are essential steps in navigating the complexities posed by these disorders.

Even in seemingly harmless interactions, you may feel nervous, self-conscious, and embarrassed.

Living with social anxiety can feel like navigating a minefield of potential embarrassment and rejection.
