At rise: A therapist and a patient are having a discussion in the therapist’s office.
From your phone call, I get the impression that you want to complain about a previous therapy, or to be precise, a psychotherapy, and, more specifically, a therapy with the designation “talk therapy,” like psychoanalysis.
Actually, I want to complain about three or four of them, and also complain about some talk therapists that I only saw once. Therapist Before you go on, I’d like you to know, that as far as I am concerned, many talk therapists can be ineffective and, unfortunately, can sometimes even do harm to patients. There are some good ones but you probably couldn’t afford one of them. I like to think of myself as one of the good ones. You’re here because I like to help people like you, who seemed to have had a difficult time in therapy. In fact, this is my mission in life.
