Why would he say this?

Posted , 3 users are following.

My counselling gave me a fright today, we were ok to begin with, but then he did something which spooked me, when he turned his head it was an ex-boyfriend who had really shifty eyes. It set off a flashback of extraordinary proporions but he said if i did it again he'd speak to my doctor's about seeing psychiatry. I an now petrified of going back, i said nothing to him, but do feel genuinely very scared. He was most concerned that i didn't know where i was. That's because the guy who raped me secondly took me in a car, strapped me in and took me up a motorway. I have poor, verging on shxx geographical knowledge, so physically couldn't tell my counsellor where i was. Why would he send me to a psychiatric? What will they do? I knew being with a male would cause problems. How do i start to explain to him what happened in my past? Help?

    im not clued up on your past, but i myself think a psychiatrist would be the best person to talk to, if suffering from ptsd symptoms, they'd be better than a G.P, Local Doctor, or a general counsellor who helps people in all situations, id say a psychiatrist would be the best experience in the situation we find ourselves in, thats only my opinion. Someone else could say different,

    Hi Sam It's been a while since taking to you. Take your flash back slowly it's been hidden for a long time but now that it's come to the surface it must be the right time to openly deal with it.

    If you feel that psychiatry is not for you then don't do it, remember all the advice i have given you in the past Sam the same applies, I'm here if you want to talk. By the time you let all things out and feel better for talking about them your child will arrive, you know yourself you need to be trauma free raising a child.

    God bless

      Sam of course it's tough to speak about then don't, your emotions and feelings will come to the surface a bit at a time, Rome wasn't built in a day so they say. Are you psychic!

      About five or six years ago I did a counsellor's course lasting eight months and it was intense, it was through this course that i discovered i had P.T.S.D. and I'm always looking for courses to help me to help and understand others needs.

      Hi John aw that"s a good suggestion. I have always believed in God, but recently my faith has been tested and due to what u speak about at a counselling i feel i can no longer go to church at the moment. I feel saddened by that, but it's a particular line in the lord's prayer that is doing this. I have been diagnosed with PTSD. That's why i see a counsellor but i am even having doubts in this now. I don't know where to turn and being threatened with psychiatry has made things 10 times worse. I feel total disbelief in anything now.

      Sam Tell who you have to tell that you don't need a psychiatrist it's your life and your choice, i have faith in you taking one step at a time don't worry about your connection with your church you are there with God all the time.

      As a Spiritual Healer i study all alternative ways to heal, I believe we are all connected through energy, science has proved that the universe is made of Matter and we along with our planet are made of the same stuff.

      So the more I study the more i can see a way forward for you and thats the faith you have in yourself.

      God bless
