Hiya, Wishingstar-

I have to say I didn't find therapy useful at all- all we did was discuss the events of the week, (like you described) and never got around to working on the deeper issues that caused me to need therapy in the first place.

I don't know if having a different T. would have helped or not... to be honest, because my sessions were 'means tested' and I didn't pay the full amount, I think they gave me to someone who was a recent graduate. She seemed quite naive and inexperienced- I used to feel like she was referring to notes or textbooks a lot of the time, and a few times I could feel myself getting annoyed, (I wanted to shout, "Oh, for god's sake stop with the Freudian crap already!" Lol)

I would get SO frustrated, and I was feeling worse after each session... just gave up in the end. I stuck it out for 6 months; that was quite enough.
