it would be very very important to be seeing a psychotherapist very regularly to treat dissociative disorder without medications.
that is the most important part of treating dissociative disorder without medications: seeing a psychotherapist or a psychiatrist regularly, weekly if possible.
that would be the most important part of the support for the patient

i just want to know if i can make an appointment with GP and just ask him to refer the patient to a psychotherapist without having to go though a medical? thank you for your help.
that will be up to the GP doctor.
I can't predict that.
but they should be willing to refer you to a psychotherapist
you can always just refuse to have a physical examination.
that is your right to refuse a physical examination.
Thank you. What if talking doesn't help is there any practical things that patient can do to help herself?
you are doing all the things you can do
writing and journaling is a good idea.
you can also go to support groups as well and talk to other people and help each other
but seeing a psychotherapist would be the best thing for you.
good luck to you
let me know if you have other questions.
