so today I saw my usual therapist (I try to see her 1-2 times a month). Usually all I get is more of a "nod", when I really was looking for more feedback, more validation. I speak 95% and she 5%. And then I pay my $15 copay. After I come home, I am like I could have done better things with that copay money.
So is this the usual? I have tried another therapist..but she was worse..she had no warmth in her. I also tried one other person and she was promising but insurance doesn't take her so it was something I couldn't afford after one visit.
So I guess, question is - what really should a therapist be doing? Either it is just repeating same thing every time..without really addressing underlying cause. Ok, few months back, she tried this eft therapy..but i found it silly.
I like to get more real feedback and more than just saying ''hmm..so what do you think?"
So looking for people who had good experience with therapists -what did they really provide? and frustratedwith3,what would you do..
