Can therapy get you in trouble?
Therapists are held to very high ethical standards by their governing state board and a violation of those ethics could result in fines, loss of licensure, or even jail time, said Walwyn-Duqesnay.
How do I get over serious trust issues?
Try not to push too hard, as you do not want to scare the individual away or cause him or her to feel threatened. Be a good listener, and allow time and experience to do the rest. If you are someone who has violated another’s trust, keep yourself in check, asking yourself if you are a trustworthy individual.
Do you trust your therapist?
Previously, I proposed that trust of your therapist is necessary if you are to achieve the success you hope for when engaging their services ( Therapy’s First Obstacle: Trust My Therapist? No Way! ). At the least, you hope for reduction of the undesirable trauma and/or PTSD symptoms which bring you to therapy in the first place.
Is it in my best interests to feel comfortable in therapy?
We certainly know that it is very much in our own best interests for you to feel reasonably comfortable. Initially your therapist is a stranger to you. Many clients bring a particular sort of distrust to therapy.
Do I go to therapy if I’m too uncomfortable?
Do not go where you are too uncomfortable – but do consider that therapy in general is not itself a particularly comfortable situation. It can’t be, because it’s about personal growth, and that always requires a degree of real stress. Your therapist will expect you to be wary, especially if trauma is in the picture.
