I recently "dumped" my therapist - meaning, run away quickly - because it was very clear therapy was not therapeutic. I don't want to say abusive, but it was sort of borderline abusive. Now when I make a mistake it's like I have this therapists voice in my head telling me I'm this and that and the other thing, it's almost like I need to recover from therapy! I just listened to what he had to say about me for a year and it makes me feel so bad about myself. I left seeing him last month but I don't trust anyone else not to put me in a position like he did again.

I know what you mean. I had a borderline abusive/inapropriate therapist and theyre stuck in my head!!!

The thing is, what do you have to loose if you trust anyone again?

I see trust as something that is earned. Learn from your mistakes and try to find the cues that translated it to an abusive/inappropriate relationship and try not to repeat them. If you see those cues, then find another therapist. There are good therapists out there and one person's experience with a therapist may differ greatly from another's. Try to judge each therapist favorably in the beginning and when trust is added see how they behave. Are they worthy of your trust? Do they support you? etc. I hope this helps a little.
