Our expert says:
This is where I suspect it is not something valid and effective like CBT that your therapist is providing. Or, for instance, your BF would be given tasks to obsess about, to analyze the GOOD and positive things in his life and relationship. If there has been no progress in some months, seek a different therapist, preferably one providing COgnitive-Behaviour Therapy. And as Maria suggests, check WHAT mediation and WHY the therapist thinks he needs it --- if antidepressants, they won't solve everything but may enable him to obsess less and use therapy more usefully.
