Default Welcome to the Psychotherapy forum

Well, I'm amazed we didn't start this forum earlier, as people seem to have many questions about psychotherapy, how to get started, how to find a new therapist, knowing when to end therapy, etc. etc.

Here's a forum to share your psychotherapy experiences and help others understand what to look for in quality psychotherapy. Here's some background reading:

Thanks, this should become good reading! LOL I didn't get to tell you that my opinion of the then "new" PsyD has completely changed. You know how new things, change, are generally mistrusted? Besides, you are still working, and I am not... so I have to admire you!

I don't know where to go. I have a relationship that has some abuse, but not physical, at least people that know me tell me he needs to be medicated, he's a control freak and I need to get help, but I truly don't see the abuse much. I do and I don't, there are reason's for my husband's behavior and I feel for him, but I want out and I am scare to do it. Therapist are expensive (no ofense) and I know I cannot do it alone. I am in St. George, UT.
Any help?

It depends on why it matters to you. If you want to go to him for therapy and have insurance, they might not pay and you might not be able to go to him. If you're paying for it yourself you can do what you like, but you might want to ask him why he isn't liscensed. If you have a complaint about him, that would be a different matter.

<font color="purple"> My situation is similar but not enough for me to think my husband would need meds for his problems which I know stem from difficulties I've had in the recent past as well as his own issues. The other thing is, I don't know where to start posting here. I've got very specific problems which don't seem to be covered in any particular thread. Also, I'm a victim of unwanted manipulations by coworkers that know me intimately and have abused this priviledge using certain stimuli that they know works on me. It scares me! I don't want my freedom stolen from me. Abuse at home has also been a problem in the recent past. I've got multiple anxieties because of rape etc.. What can I do that may help me out here as well as at home?? </font>

The psychologist i used to see kept trying to put me on Paxil for deprssion even tho i'd been on it before & didn't like it. It worked a bit to stabilize my moods, but i felt in a daze all the time & still couldn't function. I seem to have symptoms of adhd, bipolar, & depression. I tried to tell him i thought i may have adhd, but he immediately dismissed it. My son has been diagnosed as well as 2 nephews & my daughter is being evaluated. I just moved and am getting ready to see another doctor. Any suggestions?

Doc John,
I am desperately searching for a good psychologist and hope that he or she will be as understanding and sharp and on top of things like you are. Keep up the good work. We all need you here.

Since you said doctor, you might be thinking of psychiatrist. You could also go to psychologist (maybe ask for a neuropsych evaluation), or any mental health professional could probably help you work on memory and makd appropriate referrals as needed.
