There are many, many forms of psychotherapy. And, within each type of psychotherapy, there are great differences among practitioners in their personalities and skills. The most important thing is to find someone who is a good match for you.

Look into the different forms of psychotherapy and shop around among practitioners. Ideally, you will find someone who your gut tells you is good for you. But, sometimes, for a limited period of time, with a pressing need, it may be necessary to settle for someone who you feel can help you somewhat, even if they have flaws.

It’s difficult to find someone who knows about w/d. Try to find someone who is either open to being educated about w/d or who has experience working with chronic illness.

It’s harder to tolerate the process of shopping for a practitioner when you’re in severe w/d, but it can be done. Or, you can wait until you feel better, and then it will be easier.

Don’t let anyone tell you your w/d symptoms are *only* psychological issues, but do be open to the possibility that your psychological issues (and we all have them) are interweaving with the neurological symptoms of w/d.
