    Therapist (possible) covid denier should I can her?

    According to Chris Whitty, Boris Johnson etc (presuming you are in the UK) we're supposed to be worried about having covid asymptomatically and passing it on to others. We're literally being told to think in the way you are thinking, and that this is a sensible approach to take. She may have...

    Angry with therapist and I don't know if I am being unreasonable, if this is transference?

    Thank you Whiteraven :D My trust in him has been restored somewhat, I've come back from the brink which is nice. I think me finding this diagnosis and asking him about it has helped overall as we're focusing in now on the things which I need to focus in on, even if it's happened in this...

    Angry with therapist and I don't know if I am being unreasonable, if this is transference?

    My update - I had my session and it went quite well. He suggested talking through the different criteria and how I felt about it, how I identify with it or how it fits. Also how they relate to mentalising. So we started to discuss one of the criteria - it is helpful I think as it gives me...

I wish he would be a bit more encouraging about what I need to do and discuss, although I can't expect him to mind-read I do think he needs to verbalise certain things to make them ok for me to bring up and talk about. For example the points you...

    Angry with therapist and I don't know if I am being unreasonable, if this is transference?

    I've been seeing my therapist weekly for 9 months. I feel angry with him for a number of reasons and I don't know if I am being unreasonable, if this is transference, if this is a stage in therapy that was inevitable, if this is what is meant by "rupture"? Therapy is done over video link. He...

    How to deal with lack of arousal due to past abuse?

    Thank you for your comments and sorry to hear about your experiences. I haven't talked about it with either. I've been dating him for six weeks and it seems like such a serious thing to talk about, I can't imagine how to broach the subject. We've mostly been focusing on affection and...
