Narcissism in personal relationships

'Lockdown has been a narcissist's paradise,' according to divorce lawyer Vanessa Lloyd Platt, speaking to Metro. 'They've had their victims at their mercy – isolated and helpless.'

She adds:

'In its extreme form, narcissism is a mental disorder and the impact on victims and their families is huge. Virtually all of my clients who have fallen victim to these manipulative charmers say the same thing: "I don't understand – they were so loving at the beginning. All I want to do is go back to our early days."'

In an article for Family Law Week, Karin Walker, Founder of KGW Family Law and co-author, with Dr Supriya McKenna, of Narcissism and Family Law – a practitioner's guide, provides advice to help family lawyers identify and manage narcissistic behaviour in any divorce or separation.

In her wide-ranging article, Karin describes four ways in which those with Narcissistic Personality Disorder present themselves to the outside world.
