I have a client who has been brain washd by a cult

Customer Question

i have a client who has been brain washd by a cult organisation
JA: Have you spoken to a counselor or doctor about this?
Customer: Yes, she has had the support, but nothing seems to crack it. Technically it caused her psychosis but she is better. I'm an alternative therapist and i need to understand what happens to the neural pathways, how to help her reprogramme them and free herself
JA: Is there anything else you would like the psychologist to know?
Customer: im looking for scientific medical input what happens when someone is brainwashed

I would also like some advice how to best hold the space for a patient with psychosis. I know how to do that as a healer, but wanted the input from a psychologist so that she gets the best possible care. She has been to over 50 therapists and has stopped with me and my colleague, so what we are doing is working, but the case is stretching us as we have not so good spells with her. It's very up and down.
