I believe the fastest process of recovery is validation of what you feel about your past, no wonder this site is such hit.

That way your therapist is missing out one of the basic tenets of psycotheraphy, that is to respect your patient, and above all be patient yourself!

IN NO WAY am i saying to not fire your therapist. you probubly should fire this one. But in the future, dont be to reluctant to hear their point of view. I have found in therapy that my "T" will bring up points that at first have seemed like total bull to me. but then on the drive home or later in the week it pops back in and something makes me say "maybe." It might help to hear them out and really think about what they are saying, it might not be totaly true, but there may be hints in there. If your not going to listen a little in therapy whats the point in going? you can sit on the couch at home talking to a parrot if you just want someone to agree with you.

Shadow - I only had a T for a couple of months. She would ask me what I wanted to talk about and just let me speak. Once I started talking she would ask me how I had felt at the time, or, how that made me feel now. It was never about what she thought. She was very good and helped me a lot. She wasn't even an abuse specialist.

She was another catalyst in my recovery!

Therapists should never impose their opinions upon you - they are there to guide your thoughts, not create them or impose them upon you.

Wishing you well ...Rik
