    Who belittled and bashed you? I didn't see any of that in this thread.

    Sometimes the most effective answers/solutions are not directly related to the problem, as in Solution-Focused Therapy and the concept of post-traumatic growth in narrative therapy.

    I’m sorry, it was on another forum. Kept inferring I was trying to seduce my therapist or wanted to elicit sex!

    Oh, sorry @Cindy. That was definitely both unkind and unhelpful.

    Yikes, that certainly does sound unhelpful.

    I can understand the curiosity of wanting to know what one's therapist thinks about them. In my case, I wonder about different things such as whether my therapist likes me as a person... not because I want anything to do with him outside of therapy, but just because I don't think I'm very likeable in general.

    I hope the answer/response that you got from your therapist was helpful, whatever it ended up being.

    At the suggestions of his colleagues, he did not answer the question. To which I asked him as a therapist who uses CBT, how is my transference for him dealt with, to which he replied that by bringing it out in the open, we’ve dealt with it!? WTF? Now I’m even more confused!
