Wow, what an arrogant last statement! After my first interview, my T said something like "I think that I can help you with XYZ. Where would YOU like to go from here?" He always leaves it totally up to me if I want to make another appointment and when. ANd, at the beginning of each session he asks "what would you like to talk about today?" He is all about empowering his clients in their lives, so he himself lets us have some power. I find it very reassuring that I always know where we'll start and how the session will end.

As far as the pdoc goes, I would probably say something like "I saw a therapist on my own, and I really felt that he was not a good fit for me. Could you recommend a therapist that you think is good and would be fit for me?" I wouldn't make a big deal of how horrible this guy was. Just listen to the doc, try out his judgement and you don't really have to say much about it next time you see pdoc if the 1st interview goes poorly (maybe just that it didnt really work out)unless you want to.
