There are so many different types of counselling and psychotherapy which to the everyday lay person can be extremely confusing. This section aims to lay down a few basics about therapy to help you unpick the psycho-babble and make an informed decision on what is best for you.

As with any profession there are lots of different approaches and methods that a counsellor or therapist can employ. Whichever model of therapy a counsellor has adopted it is the relationship between therapist and client that is crucial and the key to change, growth and successful therapy.

Use the menu on the right to learn more about therapy and how it could help you.

If you are having trouble finding a therapist/counsellor in your area please supply your postcode and town to us at ‘find-a-therapist‘ and we will do our best to provide you with a list of alternatives.

      I see this was posted over a year ago with no reply. I hope you joined up and posted on some of the forums. Or found someone else to talk with. It wasn’t your fault. None of it. Even if you think you made bad choices on your own at a later time, it was only because you were “programmed” to do so early on. I also hope your wife can understand. You were very brave to bring it up.

      Best of luck to you.

      Curtis, I am in my sixties and in the past 4 months started getting flashbacks, they are monsters that overwhelm me. Please know you are not gay but were a boy abused by people that were suppose to love and take care of you, you were and are innocent, they are the criminals.I find talking to God helps me a lot. You pain is natural you were horribly abused by so-called loved ones. Please ask for help from therapist. I have been diagnosed BPD there is a great book out by Blaise Aguirre he is a professional is this condition. it is available is libraries. Love and Blessings,

    I was in a situation like this from 3 – 5 years old. Frequently forced to give oral sex and sodomized to the point of needing surgery. I had my nose and jaw broken by physical abuse and witnessed a murder. Urinated on and injected with hard drugs until the state came in and put me in a mental hospital. Fortunately I was saved from the hospital by the people who adopted me. I’m 35 now and have seizures, chronic neurosis, and other problems. A neurologist made things worse by misdiagnosis and taking a lot of my money. I know I need help but ‘m afraid of doctors and I’m overwhelmed with guilt for being a burden on my parents and I can’t get along with people. I get suicidal and harm myself if I’m too “low”. I’ve found a few ways of coping and relief but the law is against these. I’m trying to move in the right direction and see a doctor but I just get stuck in a circle of self hate and wasting the precious little money I do get from SSDI when I do want relief. Being unable to work for money is a wall that I can’t climb. When I have money, I have fun and friends but when it’s gone then I’m stuck by myself until that next deposit. A week or so of happy spending then about three weeks of agonizing anxiety and boredom and wanting to get professional help but my money’s gone. This circle changes but rarely improves and often gets worse. Disappointing the people who adopted me is often the reason I haven’t succeeded in suicide, yet… I can’t see a better future without getting lucky and winning a lawsuit or something.
