I can't find any specific research about this. I want to know if there are specific mental health therapies for co-morbid MH issues, which either do not help people on the spectrum or can do more harm than good. I do not mean medication as that is a separarate discussion.
For instance, I understand CBT can be quite helpful if tailored to our neurology. But with CBT part of it involves facing up to the thing that causes you anxiety, and something like that could be incredibly traumatic for us.
Does anyone have a source I can access to find out more information?
I've recently been for hypnosis - I did not ask for or even wish for a "cure", I simply wanted to regain some faith in myself, some self confidence and the strength to deal with the "stuff" that troubles me. I realise that I'm going to always have differculties with lots of things - to be able to accept that and be strong enough to work my way through things without falling in my usual heap was my request to the therapist. It 's working - not in a "wow that's amazing" way but there's been subtle but positive changes in my attitude. I've got to keep at it and accept the not so good days (plenty of them!) but by far the most useful and best thing i've tried so far.
