It IS different, it's more CBT like, I think. I didn't make much progress with previous therapists, except the one who moved away. I don't know what I'm looking for as far as therapy style as long as it works; I just don't want to spend 20 years in therapy or something.

I never thought about this. Thank you for pointing it out. Do you think maybe I should give it a few more sessions? Perhaps I never got anywhere with therapy before (except for the one) was because they were too laid back and more like social hour/friends.

That's just it, I can't tell.
