therapists have all different personalities. You seem to not have one that suited yours
There are therapists that feel long term, in depth psychotherapy is what every patient wants. Sometimes what people need are simply some tools to help them make it through a difficult time. Try asking your therapist to provide short term assistance.
yep..molehills can be turned into mountains...i've been on the receiving end of a crappy professional.
I'd say get a second opinion, just like you would any other diagnosis from a doctor. The therapist you are seeing may not be that good or not know what they are doing. Try seeing another therapist and tell the new therapist what happened with the first therapist. Maybe you will get better treatment. You are right in thinking that you should feel better, not worse, after seeing a therapist.
Is it possible that a splint was required and not the band-aid that was first thought? Generally they won't make you feel bad as you won't go back. Was the psychologist recommended to you, or just available?
Psychology is used in war (Look at Iraq now). so yea it's like nuclear power it can cure illnesses and it can wreck societies.
Sounds like you went to a humanistic therapist. Try a cognitive-behavioral therapist.
Well, I can definitely see that you currently have MAJOR issues. I'm not convinced you didn't before.
