Wow Dbab! She actually wanders the room while you're talking to her??? That is SO unprofessional. IS she covered under insurance or are you paying her out of your pocket? I would seriously SAY something to her or atleast write her a note when you leave. Tht is so disrespectful and I'm happy to hear that you're going to look for somebody else.
I know there may come a point in time when one outgrows Therapist. They've done all they can and it's either a good thing, meaning the client is so much better and doesn't need therapy anymore or that this therapist has done all he/she can for the client.
What kind of therapy are you doing? Is it just the talking or does your T have you doing outside exposure therapy? I do Cognitive behaviour
Therapy and not only does my T and I talk, she makes me DO things! I have daily "CBT" chores I do to make sure the agrophobia doesn't take over, I also do alot of writing to her (Once a day so she knows my frame of mind - Good or bad - and gets to hear about
my day.) and she also helps me out whenever she can. Remember last year and the whole ROOT CANAL thing?? Yuk! Well, she came with me when I had it done. I was completely terrified!! She held my hand the whole time and talked to me, got me breathing and calm during the waves (many waves!) of anxiety that took place during that procedure.
I hope you find somebody well suited for YOU. Remember this is ALL about
you, that is what Therapy is for! Don't ever feel bad, selfish or anything because that is their JOB! To listen and help, not act bored or go around water plants. I'm calling bullsh!t on that one, she's unprofessional! DO that on her own time, not while the clock is ticking during your session.
Good luck with that!
Lots of hugs.
