Question by Cathy S: Strange therapist?
Please I need some advice. I’ve been going to a therapist who is basically not nice. When I’ve tried to stop going I’m always given a hard time. Now, I’m going to find a new therapist but I’m nervous. The last one would ask me definitions of unusual words and smirk if I couldn’t come up with the right answer, mock me, and more I will not go into… I’d leave crying. I have average intelligence, I’m not a genius, what kind of pleasure would someone who is supposed to help you get from mocking a person? How do you check out a therapist to be sure they do not have a mean streak? When I go to the new person should I mention the last therapist had a mean streak or just say I needed a change. I’m really afraid to get help now and I have depression.
