    What are the signs and symptoms of personality difficulties?Symptoms of personality issues include having difficulty making/keeping friends, spending too much time alone, not trusting others, losing your temper easily, being impulsive, worrying all the time, depending on others and being perfectionistic.

    You may also feel empty or bored inside, spaced-out when stressed, paranoid and hurt yourself at times to relieve emotional numbness or pain.

    I may have personality difficulties. What can I do?There are various effective treatments to help you overcome personality difficulties. These include Cognitive Analytical Therapy, Schema Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. A psychologist can help you decide which therapy you would be more likely to benefit from.

    A course of therapy typically consists of hourly weekly sessions for a total of 16 weeks and people often report improvements after about the 4th session. A psychologist will advise you if you are ready for therapy as you will only benefit from treatment if you are motivated to make meaningful changes in your life.
