Thanks for the feedback. Your concerns are valid ones. I have been on a different site that has had a therapy forum for years and it has proven quite beneficial.
Also, i would hope that if you have a well trained therapist that a certain relationship would develop and that you could feel like you can trust your therapist.
This is true, but like any relationship there can be aspects that can be confusing. For example, some people like a T who will give a hug if requested. A person who has not encountered that may want to know if that is appropriate to ask for. It is okay to ask but a particular T may not be comfortable with it. These are experiences that are part of the process but are removed enough that I don't think boundary crossing is an issue.
Another thing is that not all T's are created equal. As mentioned above some are okay with a hug, some are not. There are many different approaches to therapy as well. Some focus on talking while others introduce a physical component. When I chose my current T I was unsure of whether this was the one for me. I said "Well, I will try it and if things don't work out I will find another." Fortunately she is great and I have been with her for 10 years.
We do have the health and well-being forum, and it may be a good idea to create an on-going thread about therapy in that section perhaps.
Having been to a therapist for this long and being familiar with the process I think the complexities are too numerous to be adequately covered in a single thread.
