Why is this important? You want to choose a therapist who practices a style of therapy that is based on evidence, not religion, spirituality, or new age quackery.  As much as we WANT to believe in quick fixes like EMDR or hypnosis, or in spiritual healing like yoga "therapy", these are not practices that hold up in scientific testing.  Therapy doesn't work over night, but CBT can help you learn to become your own therapist and make lasting changes, even for those dealing with psychosis.
