PERFECTIONISM

PERFECTIONISM.

 

PART ONE.

In all the years I have been practicing not one client has arrived in my clinic complaining of perfectionism.

 

If you suffer with perfectionism make an appointment to see me at my clinic.

 

I also run workshops on the topic

 

I have published on the subject.

 

Perfectionism has been linked with many psychological disturbances.

 

Here’s a useful link for you to have a look at too.

 

 

  

 

Studies show perfectionists terminate therapy prematurely. My research suggested why this is the case and my clinical intervention is designed to prevent this happening.

 

Perfectionism has also been linked to suicides and suicidal thoughts.

 

Perfectionists are often the best of us and are dedicated hard working individuals.

 “Suffers of perfectionism are driven by some unarticulated belief that they have to perform perfectly to be acceptable individuals:”  David Baker 2012.

 Medical doctors, university students, police officers, accountants, teachers…These are just a few of the sufferers with perfectionism which Dr David Baker has seen in his clinic over the years and who were subjects in his extensive research starting over 15 years ago.

 “Perfectionists surrender their fundamental rights to unconditional acceptance” David Baker. 2000.

Perfectionism remains the Cinderella in the therapy room yet increasingly it is recognised as a generator of psychological disturbance in the workplace, in the home, and in relationships.  Perfectionism is recognised as a significant element in many unhealthy emotions such as anxiety, depression and is named as the villain in OCD and eating disorders.

David’s research into perfectionism led to the award of his PhD in 2012 and subsequently he has developed workshops and clinical interventions, which are focused and efficient.

David has also published a therapy book for sufferers and careers, which is available from him. [just email or ring for a copy].

“When a man says he is perfect already, there is only one of two places for him, and that is heaven or the lunatic asylum”  Henry Ward Beecher 1887.
