Awareness of narcissistic abuse and its effects is quickly becoming more and more widespread. As the survivor community grows online in blogs, forums, Instagram pages, Facebook communities and across real-life communities, the number of “healers” and “gurus” who purport to help survivors on their journey continues to expand as well.
While there are many incredible therapists, coaches, spiritual guides, authors, bloggers and advocates in a number of different fields who can provide a great deal of rich wisdom to the survivor community, there are also predators who mask themselves as healers in order to gain narcissistic supply (praise, admiration and/or resources).
When consulting these resources, it is important to distinguish between authentic advocates who genuinely want to help and those who are looking to exploit survivors at their most vulnerable stage of the healing journey.
Things To Look Out For And Avoid;
-They engage in monopolization and sabotage of any perceived competitors.
-They charge excessive costs in exchange for minimum value.
-They exhibit a “their way or the highway” philosophy rather than the idea that “it takes a village.”
-They participate in unethical practices and violation of boundaries.
-They provide false hope and egregiously improbable promises.
