Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) 
Taming the Dragon Within

Navigating Borderline Personality Disorder can be frustrating, challenging, and rewarding.  We at Freedom & Hope Counselling & Therapeutic Services (FHCTS) are here to provide you a safe place to be you, and professional assistance to help you manage, and even move past BPD's chaos. Our therapists have experience living with BPD and understand the pathways that not only caused, but can help you exit BPD's hold on a person. 

What Is Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Borderline Personality Disorder is a disruption of thoughts and emotions, likely caused by a abusive, chaotic childhood. It is marked by extreme mood swings, unstable self-image issues, and difficulty maintaining interpersonal relationships. Individuals living with BPD frequently experience violent and sudden mood swings that make maintaining stable relationships challenging. Maintaining an internal sense of equilibrium and consistency is crucial to creating and sustaining satisfying and fulfilling lives, and a BPD suffer just doesn't have this luxury.

Impact of BPD

 

Living with BPD can be both emotionally draining and mentally sabotaging; its presence can disrupt many areas of one's life, including:

Relationships: Individuals living with BPD often find it challenging to maintain healthy relationships due to the unpredictable nature of their emotions.

Self-Image: BPD can cause an unstable self-image that leads to feelings of emptiness and identity disruption, creating feelings of unfulfillment and disturbance that impact how a person identifies themself in everyday situations.

Impulsivity: Impulsive behaviors may result in harmful outcomes, including substance abuse or self-defeating actions.

Mood Swings: Intense mood swings may make it hard to manage emotions, leading to despair, anger or anxiety.

FHCTS provides individuals and their loved ones living with BPD understanding and compassion concerning how it took hold; the tools and strategies necessary to effectively manage symptoms, and a path to releasing BPD's strangle-hold on the client's life.

 

Here's how BPD therapy with FHCTS makes a difference:

Increased Understanding

Counselling services help individuals and their loved ones gain a clearer understanding of Bipolar Disorder (BPD), its manifestations, how it took hold in the client's life, how best to cope with symptoms of BPD in daily life, and how to get past BPD and start thriving.  Knowledge is the cornerstone of effective symptom management.

Skill Development

Counselors work closely with their clients to help develop critical emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance skills that are integral for managing symptoms associated with BPD.

Coping Strategies

Individuals living with BPD can learn strategies that will assist them in dealing with emotional crises and impulse behaviors more successfully and achieve emotional stability. These coping techniques can become valuable tools in their quest for emotional well-being.
