Are We Claiming a Cure for Narcissism?
Hi I am Kim Cooper and welcome to Narcissism Cured.
‘Narcissism Cured’ refers to our own personal journey. This resulted with my husband Steve growing beyond his narcissism to become a solid husband and father. We have shared our story in order to offer hope and guidance, not as a universal cure for narcissism.”
Our journey began when the professionals informed me about a mysterious disorder, they claimed equaled no hope for my marriage.
When Steve was assessed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, everyone said I should ‘just leave’ him. I was made to feel a fool for even asking if he could get better.”
Despite this, and even though Steve was hurting me, I refused to abandon him. No matter what people were saying I knew there had to be answers.
The Situation Looked Hopeless
At first, I got a lot of professional help and studied the psychology of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (which was all rather confusing) and when nothing helped then began to despair.
I nearly drove myself mad reading advice online from bitter people who had not solved their relationship problems.
For years I struggled and things only got worse until an event occurred in my life (which I share in Back From the Looking Glass) that finally got my thinking on track. I swapped from psychology and started looking at parent and leadership training. Instead of trying to change Steve, instead I started looking at how I was reacting to him.
A Glimmer of Hope
This change in me produced a change in Steve and although it still took over a year, the worst of his narcissism was at last cured!
Years later when our marriage had improved beyond all recognition, I decided to turn my research notes into an eBook. With the help of my good friend (and behavioural scientist) Dallas Fell, my notes (first written for my own reference) became Back From the Looking Glass – 13 Steps to a Peaceful Home.
Narcissism Cured Was Born!
We had no idea what we’d begun. Eight years on, our team at Narcissism Cured has received over 15 hundred testimonials, many from people in desperate situations, saying we have saved their family, sanity, marriage and sometimes even their life.
Of course, we cannot know that what helped our family will work for everyone. Narcissism is not an easy problem to deal with and there are no magic wands or easy answers. Instead we have come forward and shared our journey in the hope that it may help your family if you are facing similar problems.
These days there are a growing number of psychologists and psychiatrists following our work who regularly inform us that we are helping both the clinicians and their patients to recognise and deal with narcissism, at work and in their relationships.
