sassy411 : OMG that’s just… Ugh. I’m really glad you found a better therapist later. Some people shouldn’t be allowed to work with patients…
I’m going to be VERY picky with my next therapist. Hopefully my boyfriend’s psychologist can recommend a trusted colleague, I really loved her and she renewed my trust in therapy 🙂

I’ve experienced the range from godawful to pretty good. Like all jobs, some people do them better than others.

Bee, it isn’t really possible to compare our pain, our depression, or our traumas to anyone else’s. Everyone experiences hurtful events differently. Age, background, and past events, and so many other variables all act as filters. And, people are simply wired differently.
What you feel is what you feel and it is 100% real and valid.

I had the most wonderful therapist at first, but she went on maternity leave, and her replacement was… incompatible with me. The replacement therapist heard my story, rolled her eyes and mocked me! I felt so vulnerable… I never went back to the same place except to make a complaint and got myself out of counselling altogether.
So I agree. Good therapy is good, bad therapy is bad. Some people I’m sure would not benefit from therapy whatsoever. It’s really a case by case basis.
