I have a warm, gentle, caring psychiatrist who has never spoken to me in any way similiar to how the pdoc you describe spoke.

He is my therapist.

He has gently brought my attention to things when he has felt I was ready for them. Gently, and kindly, with careful respect of my feelings. I have had a great deal of difficulty facing some things, and he has helped me learn to do so with a little more grace.

I don't know what things are like in the world of other shrinks, but I would be just as wary as you seem.

It took me 30 years to get the courage to ask for help. On examination of myself I expected I was an even uglier person under the under the ugly perception I had of myself. Going for therapy is not easy.

You know, she could have said all of that to you in a tone of great sympathy, feeling for you the pain you have been in, lamenting with you that you were unable for so long to get help. That would have been ok. Feeling criticised is not ok. Not for me, at least. I mean, I don't need to see a therapist to get beaten up - I do a fabulous job of that all by myself.
