As a psychotherapist myself I promote the journey to those I like and care about.
However, finding the right therapist is very significant to the success of one’s therapeutic journey.
In this article (and video) I discuss the counseling process and signs that you may have a bad therapist.
Finding the right therapist can mean making one of the best decisions of your life.
It’s important to understand that in order to progress and heal in counseling you need to have the right team player. Without the right team player you risk losing your ability to grow, change, and function. Viktor Frankl coined the term “iatrogenic neurosis” to describe the process by which a healthcare provider can create or make worse symptoms in a patient. Having the wrong therapist can result in “iatrogenic neurosis” including a variety of other symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and even PTSD.
