Support check list:
Trauma aware/informed. This does not mean someone who has read a little from a distance perspective (these are a risk as they can turn their own unresolved anger and childhood experiences back on to you).
Evidence based: No gods or supreme being beliefs. If they belong to a religious body and your issues include religion then you are not safe under any circumstance with such a person as they are a risk as they can and very often do turn their own unresolved anger and childhood experiences back on to you. They can not relate to your abuse therefore they cannot support or treat you.
Should you encounter a therapist who wants to treat your spiritual abuse through attempting to re-engage you with the beliefs and culture that abused you. Leave immediately. A therapist who "over exaggerates", slumping or sighing or offering prayer cards or wants to contact clergy on your behalf. Leave immediately.
No dependence or use of and a complete rejection of the DSM or ISD until they can provide peer reviewed evidence in support of the brain disease model along with test based diagnostics. A complete refusal towards the use of SSRIs and other psychiatric medications until they understand how they work and how they mix with other foodstuffs and other medications.
Be fully informed as to any techniques applied to you; research them before agreeing and approving. Approve only in writing. Consider a breach of this part of any agreement as medical malpractice.
Seek regular written progress reports. Be prepared to obtain a second opinion.
Having said that I have to say that in my own experience I have found the safest and most trustworthy support via Counsellors to be far far superior as a result of having empathy and honesty in that they are less judgmental and less focused on attempting to diagnose to suit the distortions of manuals such as the DSM as they focus on you and your needs.

A GP who understands the above is essential.
A safe and supportive environment.
My support check list:
Cannabis is far a superior and far safer
form of support than a therapist who
approves of or participates in religious
ritual or fantasy based religious beliefs;
you are not safe under any circumstance
with such a person as they are a risk as
they can and very often do turn their own
unresolved anger as a result of their
toxic beliefs back on to you.
Their fears compel them to save you
through returning you to your abusers..

John Brown was born in Yea Victoria 3717 on 27 December, 1948. John grew up in Yea, he went to the Catholic school on The Parade Yea and then a final year at Yea High school in Station Street. He undertook an apprenticeship as a Hand and Machine Compositor/Linotype Mechanic at the local newspaper The Yea Chronicle who recently declined to publish John's story. John left Yea after realising that the proprietor and local policeman Bill Ellison along with other local Catholics in his hometown and surrounds at that time were well aware of his abuse and of the rape and abuse of other children in Yea and district and were aware of the many events surrounding the murder of Herbert Henry Kemp of Yea ...... read more and more and more and Site Map
Investigation of an unsolved murder in 1962 can no longer be investigated according to police taskforce SANO because a different pedophile Catholic clergyman who raped a child at age 8 is now dead. As a result of the dead rapist being unconnected with the murder Victorian police remain clue less.
Later in life John married in Toowoomba only to begin the most bizarre period in his life as he learned that he wasnow related by marriage to the then bishop of Toowoomba Bill Morris. Morris was the head of the bishops conference at that time and was the "Go to" person in the country for survivors of childhood sexual abuse by Catholic clergy and yet I was never able to get a time or a conversation with the bishop. I did get conversations or connection with a number of Catholic organisations with varying degrees of weirdness some of which I have written about in my blog The FAQyMe gene & the lifelong search for safe, moral and ethical social justice, the Human Right to a trauma informed and evidence based recovery and social re-engagement unhindered by the fear, anger, blockages or projections from other people's gods .
John is author and publisher of #TraumaTheory and regularly blogs at The FAQyMe gene on his journey, recovery and the horror and the scale of this global issue.
John's personal story is just another from the hundreds of millions of other stories across the globe eminating from the human rights abuses and ongoing horrors of the systemic rape, abuses of trust, fraud, deception and cover up in the global Catholic and other religions. Like those others his "issues in life" arose and remain simply because his abusers as a child were just like theirs in that their rapists and abusers were Catholic or Catholic or Christian clergy and they too remain ineligible or unable to have their human rights upheld in their lifetime..
