What do you do when you get angry at your therapist during the session???? I got angry at my therapist tonight and actually felt it in my stomach. I didn't say anything but she realized I was frustrated so she said your frustrate? So I said yes and angry too. So she asked me if at her so I told her the truth that yes. I didn't even know why I got angry.... She said to me promise me in the future you will tell me when you get angry at me, I said that I can't promise you but I can promise you I will try....

What do you guys do when you get angry at your therapist during session?

Sometimes you need to run away just to see who will follow you.

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay", I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you are not".

Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm happy.

Any qualified therapist should know how to deal with this type of thing.

It was very hard for me but I try very hard to say what I really feel...
But it's not easy...

The great thing about therapy is that you're in a private room with one other person. You can feel free to be as mad as you want, because at least in my world I don't count it as real life. I made lots of mistakes in therapy, including getting angry at my therapist, but at least it was better than getting angry at someone else...like let's say, your rov.

Getting angry at your therapist can be an experience, like how to deal with strong feelings in a good way. This person will not take it personally, but others may, so I view it as a safe space. I was able to manage my anger better after having a bad time getting angry at my therapist and basically being told, this is not a good way of expressing things


I hope you are feeling better

I'm with you toy. I always had a hard time expressing anger to therapists and would usually end up turning it against myself. It's frustrating.

It is hard for me as well - so I just "jokingly" say I feel like throwing a sofa pillow or stuffed toy at the him....

yes -there is a teddy bear that I sometimes hold for comfort - the therapist can't touch me.....

He can tell when I am angry though - and actually encourages it - tells me to express it in assertive ways.....

he also says I have lots to be angry about and thinks I need to find that anger and direct it in the correct direction rather than at me.....

Take Care Toy123

Good Shabbos
