Does anyone know of a suitably qualified and experienced psychologist in Sussex?
I desperately need some professional help, but am finding it impossible to find.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks. I have been using the Councelling Directory but to no avail just yet. I have also been asking people I know and I’m hoping that something pans out.

Fingers crossed.

I was secretly hoping that someone on here has a good CPTSD therapist that they could recommend.

I also have CPTSD and agree it's really difficult to find help. A therapist on youtube recommends looking for therapists trained in both domestic abuse and trauma, and if they also understand personality disorders this is even better, since often CPTSD is the result of living with a personality disordered parent. What you don't want is a therapist that tries to get you to 'look at the role you played in it' because that ends up feeling like victim blaming. Good therapists are out there so interview several of them and go with your gut. Good luck.
