Since people seem to be interpreting it to be that I was saying therapy or therapists are not helpful at all - that is not what I was saying.
What I was saying was therapy and therapists alone will not make some one happy. And that overwhelming and complete dependance on therapists is wrong.
It needs to be augmented with other changes and social networks etc. I have immensely benefited from therapy - but not when I was dependant on therapy and therapist alone. But when I finally combined what I learnt from therapy with other positive things in life.
