> Have you ever been given therapy by someone who trained in something else at a community college for three years then did a few week or weekend workshop course in how to give therapy?
Well, no. In the US, therapists need to be licensed and have at least a master's degree. My p-doc (with whom I did therapy for several years) was highly educated and intellectually engaged, though tried to keep me from over-intellectualizing, since that was a big problem in my relationships. He didn't do CBT kind of stuff (which I hate), but open-ended dynamic therapy.

If all you can get is CBT, that must be so frustrating. I find CBT perfectly useless. Do they have dynamic psychotherapy in NZ? You might benefit from that -- although, in dynamic therapy, developing emotional connection to the therapist is one of the main goals. I don't know how open you are to that.
