I do CBT on my own time, and if things get stirred up then I take my works to my psychodynamic minded therapist.

He says that any good therapist (CBTherapists included) will show empathy and foster a client-therapist relationship.

I also like the idea that therapy is a thing of compassion. maybe the biggest thing that we have to learn is compassion for ourselves. One of the ways we can get there is by watching and observing and (ugh!) assimilating the compassion that a therapist shows to us, week in week out.

There are SO many ways of "clicking" with a T. I clicked with mine right off the bat because of his intellectual sophistication and because he was honest and really THERE for me. Now I'm starting to understand him as a caring compassionate soul, and finding out that he doesn't do his job out of material concerns but rather out of humanistic ones.

Some good places to start on CBT stuff include the book "thoughts and feelings" or the book recommended at the top of the page "the new mood therapy"

I think that it's helped me a lot with my generalized anxiety and with depressive thoughts.

best wishes, and let us know how things go

sorry if things are really hard right now. finding help is the HARDEST thing for most people. once you do that, you deserve massive credit.
