Treatment for jealousy - mapping the specific mechanisms

When you seek out psychological help for jealousy with us, we begin by mapping the specific mechanisms that are the driving force behind your specific issues.

We separate between basic foundational factors, triggering factors and sustaining factors.

Once we have mapped these factors, we will know more about what is needed to give you the best treatment for jealousy in exactly your situation and how we should tailor your therapy.  

Simply becoming conscious of the inner dynamics that are propelling your jealousy is often therapeutic in itself.

Common reasons for excessive jealousy

Excessive jealousy is often a sign of inner conflicts that are creating anxiety. Often these conflicts are rooted in early attachment experiences.

When difficult feelings related to actual past experiences have not been processed, these feelings can be projected into present and hypothetical future scenarios.

When these old experiences are processed, self-esteem is often improved and can develop more freely, allowing you to enter into relationships with others in a more secure manner.

One is seldom conscious of these underlying dynamics. At Psykologvirke we are experts on methods that can help make the unconscious conscious.

Therapy for excessive jealousy - different methods

There are various methods for the treatment of jealousy. For example, intensive depth therapy (ISTDP), metacognitive therapy, cognitive therapy or psychodynamic therapy. You can read more about these here.

No method is right for everyone, all the time. The primary factor in the successful treatment of jealousy is that we collaborate in a way that is meaningful for you.

In certain cases, couple therapy for issues with jealousy, in addition to individual therapy, can be relevant.

Our professional assessments will form a starting point, and then together we will evaluate the ongoing progress as well as any need for potential adjustments.
