Hmm...I don't know if they would lie over anything major, like a diagnosis to spare your feelings, but I'm pretty sure they make up little stories to make you feel at ease. My previous T was trying to get me to admit to having an eating issue, and he told me clearly fabricated little tales about how

"when I was really depressed and in college, I would smoke a TON of pot, and listen to Pink Floyd, and eat, like, a WHOLE BAG of oreos....and oh, by the way, do you ever do anything like that?"

It was pretty transparent and I think it qualifies as lying. He grew up as a Mennonite and didn't even see a film until he was 25, so I was a bit embarassed for him that he thought I'd buy it.
