Had a phone call yesterday with Vita Minds, they did an assessment over the phone and I'm now waiting to be put on for CBT therapy. Just wondered if anyone else has gone through this company or therapy, and welcome any advise for starting therapy ❤️

      @sillyashell On advice for starting therapy - Find a therapist that is patient and is willing to listen and work with you. A therapist that pushes you, invalidates you, or doesn't show any interest in your growth is not a therapist you want. Working with my CPTSD & personality disorder has definitely required a lot of patience of medical workers. You know you find the right one when they're grateful of your good days when you do feel like opening up and have more to share but understanding of your bad days and when you are not quite ready or open.

      CBT didn't work for me because my thoughts are just different from a typical person's thoughts, but if anxiety is your main focus then CBT is very highly recommended and will most likely be of great help

      My experiences with CBT and DBT were traumatic, but these were through services that refused to acknowledge my Autism Diagnosis, and powered through despite the clear distress it caused me.

      CBT and DBT are awesome. I did DBT for over 2 years and still practice it daily.

      I have done CBT therapy. It worked really well for me
