Hi Kara,

Please don’t think you’re dissuading me, I want to weigh up the options before doing it and would hate to give up a week of my life and pay all that money for something that isn’t right. So it’s good to have your insight. I was very tempted to do the process (and yes, all those radiant people talking about how it turned their lives around is persuasive) but bearing in mind how I used to struggle so much in one hour of therapy a week, it sounds too intense. Despite that I like the idea of the intensive nature in that you’re forced to deal with your life in one big go and there’s no getting away. Plus, the emotional release would be helpful, it could really give you a kick-start to go on to longer term improvements. But in practice I probably need something gentler.

They put a lot of emphasis on how you get energy from the group and are supported throughout, but I can see that your experience was a little different. I wouldn’t want to do it unless there was a supportive and understanding approach, whereas it sounds like it could get heavy handed. Perhaps I need to have a better go with therapy before considering it. I just feel this strong pull towards it (not sure why) but I have to remind myself to be realistic about what I’m capable of.

Best wishes
