I had a question to other female sufferers; are any of you by any chance from the Netherlands? I was wondering about that, because I'd like to come into contact with women, who might want to start some type of group in my home country, or alternately, would like to talk about what could be done about paruresis in the Netherlands.
I don't know of similar methods of therapy in the Netherlands and think that's a pity. I had sessions with a counselor, and had to make a list of difficult toilet situatons, but never practised with someone there unless it was a stranger visiting a public toilet).
I think the method used of the UKPT is very good and should be available to anyone in any country, but so far I could only attend the workshop in the UK.
I have come into contact with one fellow sufferer in the Netherlands, but he is male. I don't know any females who have this problem, at least not in my country.
Anyway, any Dutchies wanting to get in touch, even just to talk on this discussion board, let me know. K
