Oops...last post was for PWeil..but to add to what Rskontos said, I found the touchy feely approach by non-psychodynamically oriented therapists to be ineffective. It always seemed like they were agreeing with me about everything, and encouraged the intellectualizing of my emotions--which was not helpful at all for my particular situation. It WAS helpful and supportive in dealing with daily life problems. I can't say these Ts did not help me--they did.

However, there was never a painful moment--in looking back, it seemed to have resulted in a somewhat adverse effect on me now--and my ability to reach self-actualization--because those repressed emotions that piled up during my childhood were never acknowledged, experienced, brought up, felt, processed....

I want someone to confront me, push me, challenge me. Generally, I don't believe change can be facilitated by not changing anything. I think in order to grow, in certain contexts, you have to challenge yourself and experience some level of pain.
