The therapeutic process can be enormously helpful to someone with depression, but its success is largely dependent on a positive relationship with the therapist. If you are not happy with the progress you’re making, or uncomfortable with your therapist in general, it might be time to find someone else.
Here are three significant reasons to find a new therapist:
- Your therapist does not respect therapeutic boundaries.
- Your therapy isn’t going anywhere.
- The chemistry just isn’t right.
Your therapist doesn’t respect the therapeutic boundaries
Boundaries are probably the most crucial element of the therapist/patient relationship. In therapy, boundaries exist to protect the therapeutic experience.
