When I had a therapist it was all pointless. I guess therapy doesn’t work for my sz negative symptoms. I need a med change.

I have an amazing Therapist and have improved so much since seeing her. I have had previous Therapists that were not so good though and definitely a pointless exercise.

My last therapist was a PhD psychologist and she was a waste of space.
Literally sat there to kill the time by talking about what’s new on cable tv.

My new and current therapist actually helps me.
She is a pleasure to work with, actually caring for her clients.

What a difference

I find my current therapist basically pointless, I have to see her every couple of months to be able to use the psychiatric services there at mental health. I mean she’s pleasant. I don’t feel bad after talking to her or anything. I just don’t really open up to her.

Well right now there isn’t much purpose to our weekly psychotherapy sessions, as I’m not having any problems for the time being. But she is helpful when I have problems.

My company offers therapy through a paid service called Arete. They are actually really good. I have been very pleased with it. All of the sessions are virtual.

All of my time spent with therapists has felt forced and like a racket. I would give therapy another try, but I haven’t had any luck with it yet. I cope fine enough with my pdoc, meds, and coping mechanisms at home.

I called and texted a therapist last week, I still didn’t got any answer from him.
I was trying to see if I can fix some issues I have studying and analyse my mistakes in order for the next step in my studies goes trough more smoothly

I had a psychologist for a while. It was very helpful. She was the second person to diagnosis me sz (first time was in the hospital), we worked on coming to terms with the fact that I was going to live my life with a serious mental illness

My medical provider doesn’t have sufficient pdocs or therapists on staff to meet the mental health needs of their patients. They can only offer therapy every 6 - 8 weeks which is too infrequent to be effective. I have had to rely on a therapist provided through my workplaces’s EAP rather than through my medical provider.

My pdoc is also my therapist. She’s a psychiatrist-psychotherapist.

Mostly beneficial for me. Even if it doesn’t feel like it at the time. My mind usually goes back to a therapy session by memory a few times before something clicks. By the next session, I discuss what the click was.
