Hi, I'm new to here & would really appreciate some advice (sorry for long post). I am currently seeing a physiotherapist for some chronic health conditions. However found some of the aspects of physio triggering. On the 2nd session I was honest with the physio & explained I had PTSD & some parts of physio were causing me anxiety. Initially she seemed understanding & tried to ask me what the cause of PTSD was to have an understanding of how she could help. As I was not yet ready to answer such a difficult question I couldn't answer her so she left it at that. By the 3rd session I realised I would have to explain a little more but as I was worried of it being shared with just any other health professional I asked her if it was confidential just to physio. She responded that it was however if she was concerned she had a duty to report her concern etc but what then threw me was she finished her sentence with "don't tell me, It's ok I don't really need to know". This made me feel so uncomfortable & like she wasn't interested to take the time to understand how It was making me feel. We then proceeded with the physio session & she did not change any aspect (still asked me to do an exercise I found triggering & said "just don't think about it"). Clearly she has never dealt with a trauma patient before & is inexperienced in how to handle it but expected a little more understanding. I'm not able to change physios ( it would also mean explaining everything again causing more distress) & she is otherwise very good physio side of things. My question is how do I now approach her to explain she needs to adapt some things & explain a little more about the cause for her to understand? Should I just be more blunt?
