Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am so...ooo very sorry to hear about how you are feeling. You mentioned that you were in therapy before. Do you know what training your therapist had?
Not all therapist have the same kind of training.
Given the way you are describing how you feel it sounds to me like you would need further therapy but with somebody who has the right kind of training, not someone who has a minimum level of training who then does therefore not have the adequate skills to help you dig deep to understand where your feelings are coming from and why you are feeling the way you do. There are people in the UK who have excellent credentials who can provide you with the right kind of therapy that will help you work things through.
I hear you. And you were a very wise young man to not want to see her anymore if that is how she handled things with you. As for the second therapist helping you with Anxiety Management --- that's that --- meaning staying on the surface and helping you manage the symptom but not digging deep to get to the root of the anxiety/symptom. So let me direct you to a therapist who has postgraduate training so that you know you will get somebody who is very skilled and will certainly be able to help you move past this point and therefore help you live a fullfilling life. So here is the link to the British Psychoanalytic. All people who are eligible to become members of the British 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 British 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.http://www.psychoanalysis.org.uk/
All people who are members of the British Psychoanalytic have post graduate training. I have that kind of training so I know what it can do. Members of the British Psychoanalytic are members of the International Psychoanalytic Association( I P A ).
I have been a psychoanalyst since 1976. I know the difference in different levels of training. I have 17 years of education in the mental health field post my Bachelor of Arts in psychology. I have a Master's in Psychiatric Social Work, a PhD in Clinical Psychology, and two certificates in Psychoanalysis --- five years of training each and I can tell you that there is a world of difference in the kind of help that one can offer at those different levels. I know because I went through all those levels I mentioned.
So don't despair. Go to the website that I sent you. Ask them for someone in your area. You will begin your journey into exploring what is going on in your life and getting to understand where it is all coming from and how you can change the way you are feeling.
Don't forget to rate me. If you don't I do not get compensated for my work. My goal is to provide you with Excellent Service If there is anything else you would like to ask me, please do. I am here for you.
You there? Do you have any other questions?
So what is your question apropos that?
You say he hasn't reciprocated. What does he say? Is he gay?
I see. Well if he's in a relationship that would be why he does not reciprocate. As far as making the sting of rejection go away, the therapy that I mentioned would help with that, as well.
