If you have PTSD then Trauma Therapy (of which there are several different types) is the gold standard for treatment.

Trauma Therapies For The Treatment Of PTSD

I have listed these first, as the rest are in alphabetical order. The following are the only four tried, tested and proven therapies for the treatment of PTSD that actually treat the cause, not the symptoms. They are:
  1. Cognitive Therapy - Often referred as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) (CBT) and Cognitive Trauma Therapy (CTT).
  2. Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy - Often referred as Exposure Therapy or Behavior Therapy.
  3. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  4. Stress Inoculation Therapy - Nowadays referred as Stress Management or Mind Body.

A supportive therapy will be most helpful with violent childhood IMHO. The reasons are you may recall certain things that you blocked out in order to survive as a species-person so a supportive therapy will definitely try to create a safe space - without safety in therapy no way of recovering from violent childhood. This is my bit. All the best in your search and you may have to go through few to get the right person and that is OK too. You have had horrible horrible childhood.
