Help dealing with a narcissist

No legal advice!
How to deal with narcissists



Narcissists cause immense damage in many places. A bad childhood and many other reasons may have been the trigger for this. But because I deal with the consequences for other people every day, I focus on helping those affected.

Help in dealing with narcissists


Usually, the damage is already caused, or at least foreseeable, when clients contact me about narcissists. What I can do then is to inform them about the mechanisms and options. Your personal condition is affected by unbearable situations, and you need a stable mental balance to make and implement good decisions. Narcissists sometimes develop impressive acting skills and are masters of manipulation. It is difficult to take care of oneself and one’s own legitimate interests. This is where you get support from me. When dealing with narcissists, every detail counts. Accordingly, the preparation for any communication with them is very important.

As much as I would like to help with the many requests from those affected, I keep the number of voluntary consultations at a level that is manageable for me.

If you are looking for professional support (in the areas I offer and this does not include any legal advice), we can arrange an appointment.

Either you come to my office in Berlin or we can have a telephone session or use a video conferencing system. This has proven to be very effective. Thanks to an instant bank transfer, it is even possible to book appointments at short notice.

Transparency is important, therefore you can find the fees here.

Not everyone affected has the financial means for this, that’s obvious to me. You can then at least use the comment function to exchange ideas with other affected people. Sometimes I also answer questions there. However, my days are full of working hours and I hope you will understand this. I am aware of the suffering that often results from contact with narcissists.
