People Reveal The Worst Thing Their Therapist Ever Said To Them

People are seeking more mental health treatment today than ever before. For all the good and the bad that this implies, therapists are more in demand than ever, which inevitably means, there will be more supply. But more doesn't necessarily mean better, and not all therapists are created equal. For every good mental health professional out there, there are ten awful ones. It's like having to kiss a million frogs before finding your prince—it's kinda draining. People on Reddit shared the worst things that a therapist, psychiatrist, or mental health professional ever said to them, and the responses are so bad, they make you wonder how these professionals ever got their license in the first place.

Funniest Therapy Tweets Of The Week (March 3, 2021)

They said therapy is good for the soul, but it also happens to inadvertently provide humor. Because let's be honest - there's nothing better than humor based on pain. Why else would comedians rely on their personal traumas for their material? Because everyone loves a funny-sad story, especially on Twitter. Ironically enough, therapy tweets are therapeutic themselves. Scroll down for the best tweets about therapy from this week.

Professional Therapists Reveal Relationship Red Flags And Whether They're Salvageable

Anyone who is in or has been in a relationship will know that love isn't always easy. Everyone comes with baggage (although some suitcases are way bigger than others), and therapy can often help couples get through the more challenging times or specific issues they may be facing. But sometimes, even therapy isn't enough to salvage a relationship and push past specific glaring red flags. Professional relationship therapists shared on Reddit some of the giant red flags they've seen in couples who come in for sessions and whether or not the relationship can survive these issues. Some of them are genuinely eye-opening and might make you feel less alone in your relationship struggles. Or, they might spur you to book that therapy appointment you've been avoiding.

professional therapists reveal relationship red flags and whether or not they can be saved | thumbnail text - ocelot_piss 21 days ago It's very easy to work out when one person knowingly prioritises their own wants and needs over their partners. Relationships like this are often doomed because the person simply doesn't care enough to make any meaningful change.

Woman Wants To Report Therapist For Breaking Confidentiality And Speaking To Her Stepmom

Confidentiality between therapists (and all other medical professionals) and their clients is kind of a big deal, which, if breached, is cause for dismissal and removal of their medical license. I mean, if I found out my therapist had shared information discussed in our sessions with someone else, I'd be furious. But If I discovered that she'd shared it with anyone in my family, it would be a whole new level of hell. A hell which one girl found herself in when she found out her therapist had been sharing notes from their sessions with her new stepmom. She posted on Reddit's Am I The A— Hole, explaining that her mother had died unexpectedly a year prior, and her dad remarried his new wife within the year. The OP, who was struggling to cope, started seeing a therapist, who turned out to be sharing information from the sessions with her new stepmom, who incidentally was the one paying for the sessions. Ethical, huh? Understandably, the OP was gutted and betrayed. When she turned to her father for sympathy, he sided with his new wife, leaving her at a loss. It sounds pretty sh**ty for her all-round, but fellow Redditors jumped to her defense, correctly encouraging her to report the therapist and get away from her toxic family as fast as she can.
