Hi sadsong, Welcome to healing well forum. I am glad that you found us.
I have also experanced this with thearpy. The feeling that it is not helping and I have worseing depression while going. And I have also in the past quit going to several counselors because of this. I have severe abuse issues in my past. It wasnt until I was working on my B.A. in Psychology and working in the mental health field that I realized that this was from the counselor was getting to close to "to real problem". I had buried my abuse issues from my childhood so far down and never spoke of them that talking to a counselor about it would make me feel more depressed. So I would quit going as I would feel that it wasnt helping. It is so amazing how the mind works.
I am not saying that this is your issue but for a lot of people this is one of the main reasons that they stop treatment. Something to think about......
