once again, good ideas and thanks! Somehow, I guess I was thinking of Freud who believed so much was sexual that I assumed a therapist would be trained to handle this discussion routinely. Yes, a female therapist would have been wise but none (and I mean none) were available. I do not live in a analytic-rich place. The psychiatrists mostly give meds. No training in therapy. This psychiatrist is the ONLY one in the state who deals with psychotherapy. I actually think he enjoys the process since most of his clients do not delve so deeply and he was, indeed, trained for that. I feel sorry for him because I don't think he has anyone to discuss his cases with and that's important. No one is beyond the need to discuss their "issues", or feelings that may arise during therapy. Believe me, I would want my own Psychiatrist if I were a psychiatrist doing psychotherapy. He has mentioned his job is lonely. Of course, that is his problem or concern and he could seek out some other therapists to consult with. Don't they all need that? Maybe this is why I sometimes feel I am way too much for him. I thoroughly enjoy the process and love to analyze, especially myself! Although, it would be fun to analyze him, too. Widget
