Thank you, what you write makes sense. I could go to someone else but I'm wondering if it's the best thing to flit around. Psychodynamic sounds good though, I don't actually know what my last therapist specialised in, I don't think wasn't CBT.

I think he was trying to encourage transference because he would say caring things like "If I was your dad I wouldn't have treated you like that." and "If you were my daughter..." etc. With that in mind, I should have trusted him and tried to discuss my feelings. I think he would probably have handled it in the right way, he was experienced and professional, I just couldn't manage it though.

Do you think I should see another male therapist or try a woman? I have a big father fixation / complex - whatever the term is - and have had since I was a child. It would be beneficial to break out of it although I don't really understand how therapy can solve it.

It's good talking with you.
