Hey /adv/,
I need some help deciding if I should change psychologist or if I'm just expecting too much from therapy?

A little backstory; abused by father as a child, including sexual and physical abuse. As an adult now, the police actually have enough evidence to charge and try my father for the crimes. I am not handling the stress of up coming court dates, outcomes, etc.

Last visit to my psyche was basically her telling me I am emotional and dramatic; breathing exercises and that I need to control my anger if I'm going to be a good witness.
I don't feel any of this was helpful at all; isn't it expected I would be emotional at this time and shouldn't she be helping me understand and deal with my anger?

Am I expecting too much?
I just feel there is horrible fears and anger inside me and I can't live forever with it- however my psych has said we don't need to talk about such things as they are in the past?

I think it is best for you to change to a different psychologist. It doesn't seem like the one who you currently have is listening to you and your needs. You are currently facing a very stressful life event, and I think your concerns should not be taken lightly.

Thank you for your response.
Its weird having a psyche who doesn't want to 'go deeper'; its like she thinks I'm only there because court is stressful when really seeing my father again is stressful and I feel like a helpless child... All things I've told her too :(
My next appointment is tomorrow and I guess if I still feel the same leaving I will change.

Calling you 'emotional and dramatic' is dismissive language, and this is a bad therapist. You should absolutely see a different one.

As someone who's been through about 4 therapists myself, it's pretty common that you just won't 'gel' with some of them. Keep trying.
