Whatever the adverse experience you have been subjected to at the hands of another human, the chances are that pathological narcissism rests at the core. Normal range people capable of feeling empathy and compassion just don’t treat others appallingly.
Have you been abused – possibly even without realising it?
Tangling with a pathological narcissist, ie someone who qualifies as having Narcissistic Personality Disorder and/or Antisocial Personality Disorder, often leaves victims devastated. Whether battling an intense trauma bond, struggling with a crisis of identity, dealing with debilitating dsyphoria, and/or battling physical health issues, the damage and chaos can quickly feel limitless.
It is very often the case that it is not just the relationship with the narcissist that is affected – like a rabid disease, the blight seems to pervade so many wider relationships including close friends and family and professional career.
Crushed and confused, the victim is left aghast as their entire lives fall apart around them, seemingly helpless to halt the collapse.
It is time for a emergency response plan. This is where I help.
Understanding NPD, Narcissistic Abuse and Trauma
Key to recovering from narcissistic abuse is understanding it. Driven by a wholly different agenda, restrained by different feelings (or more accurately unrestrained owing to a lack of feelings), and with a whole different mindset and way of managing relations, narcopaths are famously difficult to understand. But learning counter-intuitive thinking is vital to recovery – and to ensure that we don’t make the same mistake again twice.
