About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.

Learn more about therapists who can help with Narcissism

What is narcissism?

Narcissism refers to a personality trait or disorder characterised by a grandiose sense of self-importance, a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy for others. Individuals with narcissistic tendencies often exhibit a sense of entitlement, exploit others for personal gain, and have difficulty maintaining healthy relationships. While some level of narcissism is considered normal, narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a more severe and pervasive condition that significantly impacts an individual's functioning and relationships.

 

Effective treatment for narcissistic personality disorders

Treating narcissistic personality disorder requires a comprehensive and nuanced approach that addresses the underlying patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaviour. While individuals with NPD may be resistant to treatment initially due to their sense of superiority and lack of insight, therapy can still be beneficial in fostering self-awareness and promoting positive change. One effective therapeutic approach for NPD is psychodynamic therapy, which focuses on exploring unconscious conflicts and early life experiences that contribute to narcissistic traits. Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) can also be helpful in challenging distorted beliefs and developing more adaptive coping strategies. Additionally, family therapy may be beneficial in addressing interpersonal dynamics and improving communication within relationships affected by narcissistic traits.

 

Find the right therapist on It’s Complicated

It may take some exploration and open communication with potential therapists to discover the approach and therapist that aligns best with your needs and preferences.
