Hi people

i am quite confused about what type of therapy i should be doing.

So i have attachment issues, early developmental trauma and a few other trauma instances - which gives rise to the cPTSD

Now having done research i have been receiving EMDR, which i feel is helping but i am wary other people and the Bessel book (body knows the score) states Sensorimotor or other types of therapy are better.

Really keen to not waste more time and money, so keen on opinions on treatment experiences / thoughts etc

thank you

Hi johnram my daughter has CPTSD and BPD and been thru all sorts of therapy including EMDR. At the moment she’s having DBT and that is definitely showing benefits

I didn’t notice much difference with emdr but she said she felt some improvement but the DBT Has defiantly improved her mood, temperament and outlook
