I have found various types of therapy helpful over the years. 

I liked CBT quite a lot, group therapy was helpful, biofeedback was helpful as well. 

I recently did EMDR for trauma and it was very very helpful and now interested in Internal Family Systems therapy which I have read a lot about but have not yet practiced with a therapist. From my own self-application, I find it useful. 

 

I do not find mindfulness helpful (I get anxious), general psychodynamic therapy where you just chat about your week with your therapist has been a waste of time for me - helpful in the short term to vent but not very helpful for change. 

 

I also think that the therapist may be more important than the therapy itself. 

If you would like to get a response from me directly please type @Onmyway some place in your message so I get notified of your post. I am not able to follow all of the threads all the time.

Hello @Onmyway. Thanks for the answer. I actually needed just such information. I have been going to such conversational therapy for 2.5 years but I have not seen any benefit yet. I was wondering if other people benefit from other therapies. then it really is time to switch. Thanks.
