Hi,

I've noticed on this website that quite a few of us have had bad experiences with therapists. It's ironic, because most of us go to therapy to feel better - not worse.

At any rate, I have now had 2 bad therapist experiences and understandably, am cautious about trying a third. I really do believe I could benefit from the right therapy, but at this point I'm not thrilled to shell out thousands of dollars for someone who may not treat me well. Any general advice? Appreciate it in advance!

One was Relief (not their fault, just a bad match). Second one was my doctor

Maybe you can be more specific about what bothered you and what you are looking for now?

Over how long of a period did you work with them?
unfortunately, I have been with more than five by now (over a period of 10+ year); 1 of them I left because I thought he should've seen and helped me see an upcoming debacle, another I left because his boundary issues limited him to only dish out criticism but not receive it and the rest I left because I felt that we had reached the point where we weren't making any further progress. Currently, I am feeling stuck, or at least like I am not getting any significant "change" value from my therapist IE overall relief and progress with my condition.
