I never visited a therapist, but about 6 months after I left the group I went through an extreme state of confusion and seriously considered the need for therapy, I felt I was going nuts with all the 'voices' in my head. What really helped though was being in contact with my siblings and other exmembers, voicing and airing things out and getting support and insight.

I don't know if a therapist would understand exactly where we come from, our experiences are not along the norm of society. Perhaps you'd want to seek a therapist that specialises in individuals who have been involved in religious cults?
