I don’t like any therapy, useless for sz negative symptoms. You can’t fix a medical problem just with talking, you need meds!
Psychoanalisys but it takes a lot appointments, and money…
Is there a I hate therapy option? They change my therapist constant so I never get to know them. And I usually just sit there awkwardly while they try to get me to talk. It works for a lot of people tho so i gues I don’t actually hate it
I really wish ketamine treatment was a thing where I live tho…
I found learning CBT very helpful.
What exactly is that? And do you not have insurance? Just out of curiosity
I find therapists and counsellors useless. I’ve only spoken to them a couple times. I don’t trust them with my thoughts, and I don’t necessarily agree with their opinions. I’ve taken 3 CBT courses and used it on myself, I prefer to learn what the therapist has learned and apply it to myself. I’ve gotten along very well doing that.
My thoughts are not psychotic or weird and I don’t really have any problems, but I like my privacy and I don’t feel comfortable talking about my problems and thoughts with others.
I feel you. For me it’s mostly that I just don’t care what they say… might sound mean but how is someone that doesn’t know you teach you how to cope. Everyone is different and copeing I believe is something you have to learn for yourself
Ive never had therapy but i chose teaching because i took a class in college that was some sort of psychological sh!t i cant remember
I’m with you on this. Training as a counsellor helped me lots, but when I try to use that knowledge to help other people it’s a bit hit and miss.
Of all the therapy I’ve had over my lifetime, only one therapist ever did me any good and I only had him for a very short time.
I always got more help from books and workbooks than from therapists.
It’s not on there but… Massage therapy
You can supercharge your meds with therapy.
Just want to plug the above book. It’s worth every penny and then some. Both @LevelJ1 and I use it extensively.
It could be that you’re expecting too much, too soon in terms of results. It’s an incremental process. It’s almost like overcoming intertia, takes a while to build up speed in recovery. That’s been my experience and that of a few others who I’ve talked to in CBT.
Yep I concur it is a great and helpful book!
The other book I use is the ocd workbook cuz I also deal with ocd related stuff and intrusive thoughts and images overlap into that area with psychosis.
