While I, as a patient, may want to see a therapist's or psychiatrist's records, given the subject matter - emotions, thinking patterns, etc. - it would probably not be in my best interest to pursue that. However, I believe that any good mental health practitioner would be willing to discuss his or her impressions, diagnosis, thoughts on treatment, etc. in a way that would be understood and acceptable to each individual patient. I have been fortunate in that regard. I would question any practitioner who refuses to discuss at least the generalities of their findings. That can do nothing but leave a patient to imagine or assume the worst, or distrust the secretive practitioner.
