Brutal technique or insensitive, either way, you don't have to put up with anything from a therapist that you don't want to put up with.
Brutal techniques are not something I want or would tolerate in a therapist, even if in his own mind he was being bold and direct.
So in the case of brutal, I'm not sure it matters what was in the therapist's mind.
A therapist of three sessions who said something like that to me, even if his intent was to do what he could in the ludicrous insurance timeframe of five sessions, is not someone I'd want to work with.
But in due honesty, I have to say there are some clients who would have different parameters of what they'd accept or find useful than I do.
