Does my partner have a personality disorder?

In this video, I discuss some of the signs that your partner may have a personality disorder. One of the most striking signs is your partner’s ability to deflect and deny.

People with personality disorders are often characterised with the inability to take responsibility for negative outcomes whether in their own lives or the lives of those around them. They simply refuse to see anything wrong with the way they behave because it is always in response to what someone else has done to them. They often fail to see or accept where their own behaviour began the sequence of events which led to the problem.

It is rare for someone with a personality disorder to maintain counselling as they cannot stand any cracks in the veneer to show. They like to project a picture of perfection to the outside world. I hope you find the video informative and helpful.

If you know a friend or family member who may benefit from this video please do share it.

David Fox is an author, speaker and registered psychologist with a masters degree in psychology. He believes that overcoming issues like anxiety and depression are best tackled on multiple fronts such as exercise, supplements, working with your thoughts and beliefs, watching your diet and talking to someone who can provide empathy and support while you figure things out. His goal is teach people individually and within organisations in how to help themselves thrive. In addition, David supports patients who would like to eventually reduce or potentially stop taking anti-depressant medication if they are finding major negative side effects from remaining on the medications and looking for alternative routes to a better quality of life. This is not for everyone, and yes some people may need to remain on some amount of medication – especially those with bi-polar disorder or schizophrenia. However, for those whose issues began as anxiety and/or depression, there may certainly be another way to healing other than medication. David is the author of the book Change your Life! Hope and Healing for Anxiety and Depression.
