    Hi everyone! I am currently dealing with the issues of leaving a cult and I would like to know if there are anysupports that specialise in dealing with cults and former cult members. I still feel psychologically gridlocked by the teachings of the cult I used to be in, so any information would be nice. Thank you.

    Hi NZthrower,

    Thank you for asking this question. I'm sorry that you're in a position to be asking this question and for the experiences that you've had to go through.

    This is an older post so hoping that you are still around and browsing the forums, but I did want to pop into answer your question.

    If you go to this website https://psychology.org.au/find-a-psychologist you can filter through issues and a location. If you click on the tab Trauma / Harm, you can then click "cult involvement".

    I hope this is helpful; or that you've been able to find someone since asking here.

    rt

    Hi there, I wander also if any trauma services might be helpful, outside of psychologists, trauma counsellors or social workers or even MH nurses may have skillets applicable
