What can Perfectionism therapy treat?

Perfectionism therapy can treat a variety of mental health conditions, including:

    • Anxiety: Perfectionism can lead to anxiety about making mistakes, failing, or not being good enough. Therapy can help people with perfectionism learn to manage their anxiety and develop more realistic expectations.
    • Depression: Perfectionism can also lead to depression, especially when people feel like they are constantly falling short of their own expectations. Therapy can help people with perfectionism learn to be more accepting of themselves and their imperfections.
