I had a CBT therapist for about 18 months meeting once a month. In between visits I was given "homework". A lot of what he taught me was similar to what I also learned on a number of the workshops organised by Andrew through the UKPT. In simplistic terms it boils down to not worrying about what other people are thinking about you (people really dont care) and doing plenty of de-sensing to get used to the toilet environment. Practice, practice, practice.
I preferred the workshops as I was more motivated in a group session than on my own. I can recommend both one to one CBT therapy and the workshops.
I'm not totally "cured" but I have learned a lot from my experinces and I still keep practicing on a daily basis what I've been taught.
You've taken your first big step to getting better. Well done!
