Do you know if there is something like that near you? If affording is difficult, that could be of help - I have some friends who did it.

If you do look for professionals, I really really recommend you a radical behaviorist approach (which is quite different from junguian of freudian), or at least a cognitive-behavioral approach - they're focused in helping someone to deal with problems in a more direct way, which might be something you would like.

Just some suggestions... I hope you do find a way to feel better soon, it seems to be an awful situation to be... :/
Yeah, I may try checking out the local universities.
