In brief: Insight oriented
Probably some kind of psychodynamic / psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
Narcissistic personality disorders are usually pretty "embedded" and the features that such persons manifest are usually "ego-syntonic, " which means that they do not recognize their "issues" (although others will!). Narcissists need to get to a place of recognizing how self-defeating their narcissism is.
