    Therapists Spill: When You Have a Bad Therapy Experience


    "Just one bad experience can shut a person down, turn them off to a new therapist, and leave them disinterested and even disgusted by the entire mental health system."

    ~ Deborah Serani, PsyD


    “Just because someone is a ‘good therapist’ doesn’t mean they’re necessarily good for you.”

    ~ Christina Hibbert, PsyD


    "Bad experiences are the exception, not the rule, and most people enter this profession with a genuine desire to help people, not to do harm."

    ~ Ryan Howes, PhD

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "It’s not the adult you that needs to be convinced that your feelings might be far afield from reality, it’s the black-and-white thinking child buried deep within yourself—of whom you might have but scant awareness."

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "Healthy self-disclosure can reduce distress and rumination when it leads to greater insight and understanding about the source of one's problems. Thus, when people share their feelings with others in the context of supportive relationships, they are likely to experience growth. In contrast, when people repetitively ruminate and dwell on the same problem without making progress, they are likely to experience depression."

    ~ Wikipedia article on rumination

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "Depressive rumination is the focused attention on the symptoms of one's distress, and on its possible causes and consequences, as opposed to its solutions."

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "Remember that for all of us, our fears of what others think of us is often a projection of our own inner critic onto them. In other words, it is really your own negative beliefs about yourself that you are imagining the therapist might think about you."

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "The point of therapy is not “healing.” It’s exploration—genuinely wanting to learn answers to the question Why am I like this?, so that maybe, through better understanding of what you’re doing, you figure out how to be who you want to become."

    ~ Susan Matthews
