Dear Audrey,

Unfortunately I am unable to assist as I have never heard that term and cannot think of an English equivalent.

It is quite unorthodox for a psychologist to make a 'diagnosis' without providing any further description or advice on how to proceed further.

I would suggest speaking to this lady again and asking her what she meant. If you see any possibility of her being correct, a formal assessment - by someone different - would be the next step.

Kind regards,
Delia
