Thank you for your question. I'd like to share my view ...basically I wish to comment on two aspects:
(1) Therapeutic approaches like Schema therapy or psychodynamic therapy should be able to help. They are like tools. Tools however don't do the work, it's the mechanic who does the work e.g. on the car (to use that workshop metaphor). In the therapeutic world the therapeutic relationship is another important factor.
(2) Abandonment issues are deep seated (that is trauma territory). I would expect as a good therapy outcome that you develop a distance to the biographic incidents, that you are able to notice when you get hooked in your life trap of abandanment and that you are able to 'unhook' yourself. I would NOT expect to be problem free, or expect to eliminate emotional pain altogether. As said, this is trauma territory, and you can learn to live well with that experience and to manage trauma reactions, but expect some form of suffering when a strong enough trigger presents itself.
Therefore, I do not believe it will be beneficial for you to look for more or other therapy approaches. I believe, being patient with yourself, and look for a therapist you like (!) for some ongoing support can help.
Hope that assists.
