Our expert says:
There are various varieties of counselling, The more it is based on old-fashioned and discredited Psycho-abalytic stuff, the more useless it is. And probing into dreams is uually a sheer sign of unscientific old-fashioned waffle.
This is why you'll notice I at present promote only CBT ( COgnitive-Behaviour Therapy ) becasue there is a lot of good quality research showing that it does work and does have lasting benefits. The only worse sign that whatever counselling you're having isn't getting anywhere, than the therapist nodding off to sleep, is if you fell asleep during the session. It must be more tan a conversation, must have identified aims and goals, and a logical way to get there from here. She shouldnt need to dig for issues, as the releant issues should be ovious to both of you, and when they're settled, the therapy is done. If she says" It's bad to stop now" --- ask "Specifically how, and why ? "
All counselling cerainly isn't equal, and this one sounds pointless. It does sound like a waste of time. And should you need help in the future, go for CBT
