Hypnotherapy. Find someone who is both a psychological therapist and a hypnotherapist. Sure, it may seem like a lot of hokum, but the hypnotherapist/MSW I've worked with in the past also works at one of the major teaching/research hospitals here in NYC teaching surgical patients how to control their pain through hypnosis and self-hypnosis. She gets the call when anesthesia is problematic. The fact that she continues to work several full days per week at this rather prestigious hospital says something about the efficacy of her work. It seems to me that your situation, resulting from a recent psychological trauma, might actually be a good prospect for this kind of approach.
