How to Find a Good Therapist or Counselor PTSD Specific – Part 1

This next series of posts will focus on how I found my current therapist, since psychotherapy is the course of treatment that I have settled on for the time being. I have only been in therapy for a month now after a 1,047 day absence, or about three years. This time feels completely different. I feel like I am poised for real change and I have actual hope that I can heal. I can see a clear light at the end of the tunnel.

Therapy Script for Communication*

This is a script that I used in my last therapy session. I created this so that I could finally ask my therapist all the questions that have built up, mostly because of my fear of being vulnerable. I am hoping this script will help to open up communication a little more with my therapist and lead my therapy in the right direction.
