In reply to can you tell when your therapist, posted by tetrix on September 8, 2010, at 20:02:59

yes.. I suspect that last time my T deliberately made a mistake in order to show me that it is OK to make mistakes.. but it was so trivial that it left me feeling uncomfortable, as if I am a child.. I am sure her intentions were good but the examples she chooses are not always successful.

mine doesnt raise her voice, the opposite actually, when she tries to make me feel good or create an emotional charge she lowers her voice..

perhaps the word technique isnt the best choice but I don't know what to use instead..

well we are affected by what T's say or do because we trust that they "know and understand" what is going on with us and of course because they know a lot of intimate details that we wouldnt share with just anyone. There is also an element of respect of their opinion as opposed to a friend who doesnt have training in the field and is biased and subjective.

I was curious if people are attuned to their therapist's manipulations... I think that I always see what mine is trying to do..
