Hi Dr David Kraft
I have had a history of bipolar disorder ad I have been Duloxetine for some time now. I have taken 30mg an 60mg at various points of the last year. I was initially diagnosed with depression in the late 1980s, and I was referred to a psychotherapist at the Tavistock. Since then, I have seen a consultant psychiatrist in Wigmore Street, and another two in Harley Street. I have been diagnosed with depression, mania and bipolar disorder, but, at present, they all seem to agree, with the twists and turns of my problem, that I have bipolar disorder. Over the last twenty years I have taken Clomipramine hydrochlor., Lithium, Citalopram (this made me worse, and I felt really out of control), Reboxetine, Fluvoxamine, Venlafaxine, Maprotiline, Setraline and various other Tetracyclic and Tricyclic antidepressants, SNRIs (selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors) and Lithium salts. But I have never felt better than when I was taken off these drugs and I saw a psychotherapist in Harley Street. I felt that I had his support, and I felt that I was in control; and, in addition, I felt that I was getting to the root of the problem. I also used hypnotherapy, and this was aso a great comfort to me. I would like to see a similar psychotherapist, and one that works near or in Harley Street. I also would like to see someone who uses hypnotherapy, too. Plainly, I would like to see someone who is well qualified and who is similar to the psychotherapist I saw three years ago. He is not available now. Can you help? I have been reading your website and feel that you are independent and Freudian. I do not want to see a Freudian Psychotherapist, a Jungian Psychologist, an Object Relations Psychotherapist or anyone trained and brain-washed by these systems. I want to see someone who is an independent psychotherapist, who is adaptable, and who also uses hypnotherapy.
Yes I can certainly see you in Harley Street. I regard myself as an independent psychotherapist who also uses hypnotherapy. Please phone for an appointment.
