One of the characters (Gillian Anderson, who I quite like) is a sex therapist who has her office in her home (!) and her 16 year old son is trying to emulate her at school as a therapist for teenagers with "problems." I've just seen the pilot and while it's not the best show I've ever watched, it was quite entertaining. I think it's set in Britain but I am not sure.
Woa! I need to watch this asap, not for the sex therapist part, but for the Gillian Anderson part Thanks for the info Joking aside, I went to a sex therapist once. I was worried about my libido being completely gone because of antidepressants and other medication. I was hoping she would reassure me and also give me some advice on how to manage with my girlfriend. She was nice but completely useless. She told me some super obvious stuff and then sent me on my way (at least she didn't tell me I had to come back for x sessions!).

Totally agree. And I read on her website that Dr John, owner of this site gave her a platform to talk about what she does. I would question the ethics of anyone who thinks it's appropriate to advertise (legitimise) and embolden someone claiming to offer therapy who openly admits she isn't a qualified therapist.

All therapy is just made up ****. Sometimes some things help some people. For me, there is no difference in any of these. Some I might have have tried and some I would not. But I don't see any of them as being more or less legitimate therapy than any others.

I have no problem with people doing what the find helpful, whether it be the services she offers or something different. What object to is the dishonesty inherent in labelling what she does talking therapy. I had to get deep into the small print to discover she's not qualified in any way.

Whatever you think of therapy, and I agree it's as made up as the next thing, there are definite expectations about what it is and isn't, in the minds of the consumers, and in the definitions provided by the APA. One such expectation is that there is somebody to complain to should harm occur, another is that the therapist will have a certain standard of training.

Whatever you think of therapy, therapy this ain't. And in my view to present it as such is misleading, dishonest and potentially harmful.

I have had interactions with him before and I don't have a particular desire to confront him on this. I am just expressing my opinion on what I read, not expressing my desire to become an investigative journalist.
