About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.

Therapy for PTSD

Many people worldwide are affected by PTSD, so by no means should you feel alone or that the diagnosis is unmanageable: many have sought treatment successfully through finding a qualified and compassionate psychotherapist. Although it requires some daily effort to manage PTSD, seeking professional help is a key step in understanding what you need to gain more stability in everyday life and how to integrate healthy coping mechanisms into your daily routine. To learn how to go about selecting the perfect therapist, read our guide here.

How to choose a therapist specialising in PTSD

It’s not unusual to feel slightly overwhelmed when choosing a type of therapy. These feelings are completely normal and can be part of the initial stages of seeking therapy. It's important to remember that finding the right fit for you is crucial, and it may take some exploration and open communication with potential therapists to discover the approach and therapist that aligns best with your needs and preferences. Trusting your instincts and being patient with yourself throughout this process can help alleviate some of the overwhelm and lead to a smoother therapeutic journey. If you need additional help in finding a qualified practitioner, It’s Complicated offers a free matching service, where our in-house therapists will try to find the best match for you based on your individual needs and preferences.
