    ... But Do I Continue?

    I like him, and I imagine he'd be good but I haven't really managed to open up to him yet (and it's been a year of monthly sessions). That's not due to a lack of trying on his behalf - I know he's been trying to connect with me (and has even asked me what I need for me to be able...

    This is so nice. I have a nice psychologist.

    He is a Christian like me. He has been so helpful in getting me through when I got raped. I already suffer quite the trauma when I get stressed enough daily because of how my brain responds to things that happen to me. I was born that way. I never look for pity. I just write...

    After Much Debate

    My Therapist Judges Me

    Therapists, ideally, are non-judgmental. They listen, and offer new ways of seeing things, and possibly suggestions about how you might deal with issues that bother you. There are times when I think my therapist is judging me. Her body language—tightened lips, shaking...

    Debbie

    She's got to be the best psychologist I have ever had. I'm doing CBT with her right now and although I see her fortnightly I get in touch with her sometimes through email. She knows that I am afraid of using the phone and accepts that rather than trying to force me to call her.
