I have started with a new psychotherapist. Unfortunately she does not seem to be on track with TMS. She says that it is important to distract oneself from pain however she stated that if I keep thinking about what is going on in my subconscious it is just another way of being preoccupied about pain/symptoms. I am very discouraged. I told her the titles of all four of Dr. Sarnos books and she did not know any of them. She just wants to teach me about how to treat anxiety in the usually way. By focusing on other things. According to her you can not simultaneously calm down and think about repressed emotions/rage at the same time. I think she does not get it. I explained in detail the program and the principles. I think I may have to dump her. There does not seem to be anyone in my state that is a TMS practitioner. She wants me to do mindfulness however. Mindfulness seems to contradict bringing repressed emotions to the fore front so that the symptoms no longer have their purpose .
