Having been a mental health “consumer” for several years, I think I’m decently qualified to talk a bit about what it’s like to be in the chair opposite you. I’ve had several different therapists over some 17 years, all of whom have been helpful. Some have been better than others but I can’t fully say that there has been one experience or relationship that far exceeded the other. Basically because the bulk of the work fell and always does fall on me. As it should.
