Don’t know if I want to see my therapist anymore

My therapist hasn’t returned my phone call to reschedule an appointment.

She always gets my appointments mixed up and she seems dismissive and disinterested.

I really feel that she wants to drop me as a client.

I don’t know if I should call her up again.

She has very little experience treating clients with psychosis.

Luckily my therapist first job was working with schizophrenics, so he has a lot of experience with people like me. Maybe try to find a therapist that has worked with people with psychosis

I stopped seeing mine. I pretty much sacked her and told her not to call me again. I was seeing her for free on the NHS and it still wasn’t worth doing.

I hope you find a new one if that’s what you want to happen.

Agree mine is on The Manx NHS and starting to think he is a joke of man,he thinks that iam not fully functioning although i have always worked(Just started a business on Ebay UK), but travelling to European Cities on my own and seen The Boss twice in front of 80,000 + people.He also doesn’t believe what i tell him about my controlling Mother.I thinks its time for me to start going private when i can afford it tbh.

I’d get a different one. Nothing worse than an apathetic therapist

Rather than just not calling her, could you call and request a transfer to a different therapist? It can be hard to find one on your own, with waiting lists and such. Alternatively, could you call your caseworker to have her arrange a switch for you?

You want to get a new therapist because she didn’t return your phone call? I would call her and call her and call her…text her and text her and text her. She’ll call you back.

You’ll never find a “perfect” therapist.

Unfortunately it’s more than her not returning my phone call @anon17132524.

The main issue with her is that she takes on an extremely passive and apathetic approach when dealing with me.

My brother is right, she never challenges me or never utilizes any kind of treatment plan.

She basically likes to casually talk about shallow and trivial subjects.

I need someone who is going to be more engaging and interested.

This is just not working out.

My therapist is private.
I don’t call her for a referral, and currently I don’t have a case manager.

I am capable of finding a new therapist on my own.
Although I may ask my psychiatrist for some direction.
