> I guess I just feel like I need some empathy or someone to recognize what I'm feeling and where it comes from, based on my history. A lot of stuff from childhood that I can't let go of. I'm worried CBT won't give this... I guess I'll find out on Friday.
> CBT just seems so cold and emotionless. I know very well already what my irrational thoughts are and what I should replace them with. That's the easy part. The hard part is actually doing it...
*Exactly! Its the doing it and practicing thats hard for me too!!! Actually writing it down and doing 'the work' on paper. Doing it in my head is NOT enuf.
My T is CBT trained, but she also takes into account my history(such as it is) in looking at my thots. CBT is not emotionless! Cuz the reason your trying to deal with negative thots is so you can stop all the negative FEELINGS from builing up!!LOL!! :-}
I dunno how this T will be? Some are good for some and not others...So training aside...its proly more important that you 'click' and feel comfortable with T.
So IMHO CBT is GREAT basic stuff. But it is just a 'part' of therapy only. There's all the 'human' stuff too.
Best wishes to you. I hope this T might be a good fit for you. T hunting is NOT much fun.So maybe, like me, you'll be lucky on the first try!
Good luck,
