Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am sorry to hear about the difficulties that you and your boyfriend experience. Whereas medication might help calm you it will do NOTHING to help you to get at the root of this problem and help you learn firstly, the source of why you handle yourself this way and secondly, help you to work this through so that you don't have to spend your life popping a pill to avoid this reaction.
I see that you have already tried therapy. Not all therapies produce the same results. Only psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy gets to the source of the problem and permanently works it through.
See what is said about the latest research on PsychodynamicTreatment.
Jonathan Shedler, PhD
"Empirical evidence supports the efficacy of psychodynamic psychotherapy. Effect sizes for psychodynamic psychotherapy are as large as those reported for other therapies that have been actively promoted as “empirically supported” and “evidence based.” Additionally, patients who receive psychodynamic therapy maintain therapeutic gains and appear to continue to improve after treatment ends."
I see you are offline now. I'll pause here and await your response. If you give me your city, state and zip code I will help you find someone in your area. Also, when you respond back we can continue with this chat.
Oh hi, I see you are back online -- great!
Yes, I've tried therapy but the strategies never seem to pan out when I'm in that "zone"
I live in Wallingford, CT 06492
I know but you need to be in therapy that can help you. That's the problem with most therapies -- they give you strategies. Psychoanalytic Therapy does not give you ANY strategies. It helps you get to the source of why this happens to you and helps you WORK IT THROUGH so that it never happens again.
Let me go look for someone. I'll be right back.
Ok, thank you :-)
Thank you. And those would be therapists that specialize in this sort of anxiety?
These two people are members of the American Psychoanalytic. All people who are eligible to become members of the American Psychoanalytic are qualified to help you. If you cannot afford a full fee, ask them to provide someone who is in training(They are very well supervised by senior supervising members) so that you can see someone for a low fee if need be. Those in Training still have more training than if you choose a therapist who is not a member. Anyone with a membership at the American Psychoanalytic, has, as I have said, the right kind of training to dig deep into your unconscious and help you work through your unconscious conflicts that create this problem for you.
Are these doctors ever covered by insurance?
If you have other questions, don't hesitate to ask. If I have answered your questions, please click on ACCEPT and leave feedback. Bonuses are always appreciated. Also, if you think of more questions later you can always continue with our chat even if you have already clicked on Accept.
They usually never provide the insurance that they cover. So here is what you do. ASK FIRST. Then, if they don't carry your insurance ask them if they know anyone who does. I'll tell you what, let me look for more names so that you have a bigger pool to ask from and will more likely find someone who takes your insurance.
thanks you very much--i know i' never be able to afford someone out-of-network!
So ask each one you call. Also, see what I wrote above about Analysts in Training. They see people at low cost and have more training than anyone who is not eligible to be a member of the American.
Ok, excellent. So they are just a qualified in many ways?
Yes and also they have individual supervision by a Training Analyst.
I have to see a patient now but will be right back when I am finished to see if you have entered anything else that you wish me to respond to.
Thank you very much
