Desperate for local CB therapist in/near Bristol? (female if possible)
Posted by jackie on 13/2/2017, 4:36 pm
Can anyone point me in the direction (or -if permitted - suggest a name?) of a psychologist who has heard of (ideally with some understanding of) AP? In my area (Bristol) for CBT - I have been offered funding for 6 CBT sessions (but only if I start soon!)?
I tried hypnotherapy more than 10 years ago, but it didn't work for me. I was assigned to various general psychological/ psychiatric professionals but as they had never heard of AP, they seemed to be floundering as badly as me! I tried hypnotherapy, but it got me nowhere..
(Also my "helper" was a man, which I find even more embarrassing - (except for readers of this board, and those I have met at your workshops, because you understand - which nobody else properly could, as far as I can comprehend).
I have trawled through various local medical listings, but not found any mention of AP or shy bladder syndrome among the specialities they treat. I worry that to see a general therapist not familiar with our problem, might be less helpful if indeed helpful at all.
Or should I just see anyone with a good all-round reputation?
I have attended 2 or 3 excellent UKPT workshops, so know the drill but my followup was regrettably poor and I want to take this opportunity of outside help.
Thanks for any recommendation in the west County
