  • Can you do psychoanalysis on yourself?

    No. Psychoanalysis requires a professional with many years of training. READ MORE

  • What activities help with anxiety?

    The most important single activity for depression is aerobic exercise, preferably gradually working up to an hour 5-6 days a week. It helps to change the biochemistry of the brain and body. Being outdoors is also very helpful, as well as communicating openly with important open caring people in your life. Depending on the severity of your depression, it might be helpful to see a very skilled integrative mental health care therapist. Warm regards, Carole Petiet, PhD, SEP, RN READ MORE

  • Mental health issues from date rape drugs?

    I would encourage you to see a good psychologist who is also a SEP (somatic practitioner, who understands how trauma gets stored in the body and how to help the body re-regulate back to positive energetic flow). See www.traumahealing.org for information and "see a practitioner" for referrals close to wherever you live. Warm regards, Carole Petiet, PhD, SEP, RN READ MORE
