I've been seeing a humanistic therapist for nearly a month now and have seen very little progress. I need a more directive approach, however please don't suggest CBT because I haven't experienced much progress with that either. Thanks guys.
IMO you need a therapist who will deal directly with your SA,and do role playing with you and offer helpful advice, such a therapist should be happy and socially active, sadly many therapists have serious psychiatric problems themselves so its the blind leading the blind, searching for subconscious causes IMO is a waste of time and money:mum
CBT that teaches you new ways of calming and relaxing yourself is always helpful
in general, the more sophisticated and indirect the therapy, the less helpful it is
I've found that the approach/theory that they use is less important than the connection that you have with that therapist. I would encourage you to not close the door to Cognitive Behavioral just because it wasn't successful with past therapists.
I don't think I've ever experienced Psychodynamic (although I'm supposed to be learning how to do it in school soon). Let us know how it is, if you see someone for that!
