So my first appointment was...interesting. I was apprehensive, and had a lot of doubt about the whole process. My T seems good although I wouldn't say we immediately "clicked" He was insightful, but made some wrong guesses at what I was feeling. He says I'm not a candidate for CBT ideally because I know my irrational thought very well, and know what I should be replacing them with. In other words, I've already given myself a good course of CBT, and I didn't like it. He is not a purist and is happy to talk about my family history, other events, etc. He wants to focus on my relationships because he thinks those are what lead to symptoms of anxiety and depression. He will use what he calls IPT (inter-personal therapy), but his own modified version. I will go back to see him again next week. If I'm not getting a good feeling about him, I'm going to look elsewhere. So too early for a definitive review...
