Well, without wishing to sound patronising, the idea is enabling YOU to get inside YOUR head.
Well that didn't happen either. I was very disillusioned by the whole idea of talk therapy, you talk to these people for an hour every week, and they grunt and say "mmmm" and "how did that make you feel" and "oh really" and then then you go home thinking well what has that achieved
Unfortunately you were referred to a totally useless psychiatrist. Moreover, the good ones are very few and far between. Good luck with the YOU helping yourself thing. I think its true but its bloody hard work... and lonely. Keep on keeping on x x x
