Dissociative identity disorder, previously known as multiple personality disorder, is a highly complex condition that can have a significant impact on the lives of those affected and those close to them. We work with patients on an individual basis to deliver treatment that’s tailored to their needs, reflecting the severity of the disorder, and aim to minimise the impact it has on their day-to-day lives.
What is Dissociative Identity Disorder?
Dissociative identity disorder is a personality disorder where a person has at least two distinct personalities that alter behaviour. It’s also common for those affected to also experience memory impairment. It can be a distressing condition for those not affected, particularly if they don’t understand what’s happening and aren’t receiving the support they need to manage the side effects. If you have dissociative identity disorder or are concerned about any symptoms, our expert team are here to offer you the guidance and access to treatment that you need.
Choosing to seek professional help through a therapist can be a difficult decision. But with our knowledge, experience, and adaptable approach, we help our patients manage a variety of conditions, including dissociative identity disorder, as effectively as possible. Many people seek and benefit from the help of a therapist during their lifetime and it shouldn’t be viewed as a step that makes you weaker but one that empowers and develops you.
What does Dissociative Identity Disorder Treatment Involve?
For patients that are affected by dissociative identity disorder, we blend several different treatment options to create a plan that’s perfectly tailored to each patient. Often, we will deliver a medication regime with personalised sessions with our skilled therapists so you can both reduce the impact of the condition and learn how to better cope living with the disorder.
All our treatment options start with an assessment. This allows our accredited and experienced therapists to get to know you. With a better understanding of how you’re affected and what you would like to achieve, both in the short and long term, we’ll work with you to create and deliver a treatment plan that’s be crafted with you in mind. Our personalised approach ensures that you receive the right treatment for you.
We don’t just assess treatment once either, it will be continually assessed to ensure you’re getting the best results possible. We work with you throughout your therapy for dissociative identity disorder to adjust and develop both your medication and complementary treatments wherever necessary to reflect your changing situation and how well its working for you, allowing you to lead a productive, fulfilling life.
