You must work with a psychotherapist trained in helping people with severe ptsd.
A lot of people are helped with using emdr protocol.

In brief: Treatment

Treatment for ptsd has come a long way in the last 50 years.
Cognitive processing therapy & virtual reality exposure therapy are excellent for complex ptsd. Emdr is very good for simple ptsd. There are a number of effective psychotropic medications. It is very important that you medical providers be experienced in the treatment of ptsd.
