So, I just got started at this site, and I've got a question- what is psychotherapy? Is it like therapy where you talk about your feelings and stuff? Cuz I have done that before and I hated it. In fact, all three times that I have done it is because my parents made me.

And, does posting your question on this site and getting an answer from one of the people that is supposed to answer it count as psychotherapy?

Pretty much. The quality can depend greatly on the therapist, though.

It might, but we are not professionals, so take what we say with that in mind!

I've been going to a psychologist off and on for the past 2 yrs. More regularly since this past summer, and although I 'know him' I'm still not very comfortable with telling him things. I have tried looking for another therapst, with not much luck.
Any suggestions?

Hi jpny

Could you copy your post to the area below ?
To do that, click on "New Thread". I'm sure you will get a lot of responses by posting on the main board there rather than on this thread.

See you there!

Hello all,
Still debating if I really, really want to post here, but I figured at the very least I could post an intro. I've been seeing a psychologist for just about a year and a half. I've worked with two other therapists in the past, but never really got out of the therapy what I needed to. This time...the experience has been very helpful. It's been emotional, difficult, frightening, but I'm finally making progress. The previous two times I saw a therapist, my family was aware of it, and while I was never comfortable talking with my family about my experiences, I knew the option was there. This time, I'm doing the therapy completely for me...and no one, not friends nor family, knows that I'm seeing a therapist. I'm mostly very okay with that, but occasionally, I think it might be nice to talk to someone about my experience. So, here I am, hoping that this community might be the place to share some of what I'm going through.

--Rhi
