I struggle with depression have been to numerous therapists (psychologists/psychiatrists) over the years and I am so frusterated that none of them have really won over my trust or approval. I try to understand what the therapist is trying to tell me or get me to realize, but for some reason, I just can't buy into the whole thing. I feel like therapy is kind of fake. The therapist is acting a part and I am supposed to believe them. Does anyone else feel this way? What should I do or what did you do in a similar situation?
I think you could be right. What other profession has staff that prefer to say nothing, just listen to you, you do all the work and effort speaking and justifying yourself to them, then they say a few words at the end, book another appointment and then pocket their fee either from you or from the Government/NHS?
