That's really too bad, Cecilia. I wish I could get back the tens of thousands I paid to my main therapist, who told me after I'd been with him for over a year that he had no goal of making me better whatsoever. When I screamed that that's what I was in therapy FOR, he would just grin and lie back and say "We don't know why you're in therapy." Desperate moron that I was, I stayed for several more years of frustration.
This would be another good reason to consider the use of therapy progress evaluation forms (see this thread http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/psycho/20060703/msgs/666624.html).
But yours sounds like one of the worst experiences I've heard. I'm really sorry about it.
