compliant. haha, yes.

i guess it depends on the therapist. like how the ideal therapist depends on the client.

i think most of the therapists i've seen would think the ideal client was one who was therapy naive. they would be young.... 18-25 probably. first serious episode of anxiety and / or depression. they would be able to go through their well practiced 'standard toolkit' of therapy techniques... educating them about PERFECTIONIST THINKING! and the like. and the client would of course find this new and... liberating in some way. it would work. over a period of... 6-12 sessions. they would be better. whether it be because of therapy or because things just got better by themselves, they would be better. and they would attribute the better to therapy and be grateful, of course. as would their family members.

so... they would be a person with good family support structures. who basically didn't have anything wrong with them. just a brief episodic reaction to... something.

i remember when... they thought i might be like that. and when therapists and p-docs alike almost kind of wanted to work with me...

they obviously aren't my ideal clinicians, ha.
