I’ve been looking at possible therapists and one, in particular, has stood out. However, I am absolutely terrified of starting therapy after the fiasco with T. I didn’t realise how much hurt I was still holding until I almost started crying when looking through the possible therapist’s website. I also feel extremely hostile towards therapy in general and I’m worried that I’ll go to a session still holding on to all this anger and hurt that’s directed at T but may spill over and upset another potential therapist.

It’s never easy, is it?!

    Its never easy. Have had bad experiences in therapy in the past also so I know where your coming from. I would be upfront from the start and tell the new t you’ve been hurt in the past by a therapist. That way if anger does spill over she’ll know why. xxx

      Thank you for validating my feelings. I know I’m not alone in my experiences with a bad therapist. It’s just another hurdle to get over and that sucks! I’m sorry you’ve had this happen to you as well xx

    I agree with manyofus – be upfront about your previous bad experience with therapy and look for someone who is prepared to actively help you work through that. It is a sign of a good therapist if they are willing to spend as long as it takes on this, and to revisit it over and over as it comes up in any new therapy (which it will). Good luck with your search.

      Thanks DV. I’m taking time with this. I haven’t even contacted this potential therapist as I’m allowing myself the space to process each step. I’ll get there 😊
