As a result I developed PTSD which I suffered with for 3 years. I was unlucky enough to learn how the neuropsychology industry works. I had 4 neuropsychologist in total from may 2016 to July 2018. Just talking nonsense that benefits nobody apart from a pay check to the appointed neuropsychologist.
They keep the game going for as long as they can and certainly at no point try and fix the victims as that is less paid ‘work’ for them.
In July 2018 I gave up with the scam industry and bought the book ‘Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD: Therapist Guide Emotional processing of traumatic experiences’. I read the book 3 times in total before I completely understood what I need to do in conjunction with ‘Reclaiming Your Life from a Traumatic Experience: Workbook’.
It is very emotional work and painful reliving such trauma but necessary. Cowardice is the refuge as I tried to ran away from such trauma but reliving the trauma is imperative . There is no other way to fix yourself. Well 2 weeks of intense deciphering the trauma was all I needed. I ended my own course in August 2018. I realise know that I will never be the same person as before the accident but I certainly fixed my debilitating and morbid fear, myself. PTSD is insidious.
If there are any neuropsychologist from Ireland reading this review ‘you’ as an industry should be ashamed of yourselves. The book ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest’, is only fiction but very close to how the mental industry in Ireland treats victims of Traumatic Brain injury. I have no back ground in psychology but it is much much easier to study than my field of Physics and Computer Science. So easy in fact that it is fully of charlatans.
Anyway Exposure Therapy works.
