Do you avoid therapy because you worry about disclosing private information or personal secrets?  If so, then BWRT (brain wave recursive therapy)  may be the way forward for you.

BWRT® works with personal problems, fears, anxieties, grief, over eating and most issues. Clients have found that even severe difficulties that have lasted for years can go away and often in just a few short sessions. The therapy can be carried out via zoom.
