I just joined the forum, and wanted to post a Hello message. Also to ask peoples opinions on which forms of therapy they suggest, and the pros and cons of each.

Hi PalmettoHunna 12,

Welcome to AS!


What has helped me a lot was to find a therapist who specializes in trauma and PTSD.


All the best on your healing journey!

Hi, I hope you are finding what you are looking for. Look for a therapist who works with ptsd, trama, make sure you feel comfortable with himor her. I know there is tap therapy, rapid eye therapy, cbt therapy to name a few. I hope this helps. :)

I am interested in the balance. If one particular environment is more conducive to open dialogue than the other. With my therapist I feel like they are regurgitating textbook dialog. Without understanding how I actually feel.
