Rule no 4. Christmas – Therapy

Yes I know its sounds dramatic! but after dealing with toxic people for months or maybe even years, in and out of court, meetings with social workers, solicitors, lawyers etc you probably deserve some.

First go and seek advice from you regular GP and let them know what you have been going through. Hopefully if they are understanding they will refer you to recommended practitioner. You will need to make it clear that they will need to have a thorough understanding of PA.

If not, you can always contact the helpline (registered paid up members only) at NAAP for advice NAAP Helpline

Another alternative is to look through the BPS

Online resources to help you find a psychologist

Directory of Chartered Psychologists – search for a psychologist offering services to the public

List of Chartered Members – check whether a person is a Chartered Psychologist

Directory of Expert Witnesses – search for a psychologist to act as an expert witness

Register of Psychologists Specialising in Psychotherapy – Search for a psychologist who specialises in psychotherapy

Do not make an appointment to see someone before Christmas, (believe me it is very distressing dragging up events from the past and leaves you exhausted). Prepare yourself to see someone in the new year ready for a fresh start.

After the first few appointments it will be worth it, things start to look very different and you will become emotionally stronger and more able to deal with things.

Therapy

Therapy can take various forms:-

  • cognitive behavioral therapy
  • mindfulness-based cognitive therapy
  • psychodynamic therapy, or a combination of these.

But at the center of each is the caring relationship between a mental health professional and a patient.

Prepare for fresh start to have a healthier, happier new you in the new year.
