my therapist isn't very good or helpful but she's very pretty and motherly and makes me feel cared for and her voice is soothing
is it unhealthy to keep seeing her? it's the highlight of my week
What makes a therapist good or helpful?
Becoming attracted to your therapist is pretty normal. It's a byproduct of having an emotionally vulnerable relationship with someone of the opposite sex.
It doesn't mean you love her, and it will pass.
idk senpai i'm pretty ugly, i'm fairly certain that's why she is so sweet to me, i'm ugly and cute like a baby pig or something
>What makes a therapist good or helpful?
she doesn't ever challenge or criticize me. i've been seeing her for about 2 months and i don't feel like i've made any progress at all besides finally having an outlet to talk to someone. she makes me feel very nice but i also want someone who will hit my problems head-on. i've confronted her about this and she said she would promise to start doing it but she hasn't.
Well, I don't think it's unhealthy but it's obviously not helping you either. I'd say it's basically just masturbatory. You could be spending your time and money on something that would actually help you. Ultimately it comes down to what you value more.
Totally. Patrick Bateman's always got the right idea.
