Our expert says:
Its a personal thing : some of us feel more comfortable and confident with a male counsellor or therapist, and others of us feel more comfortable with a female ( whether we ourselves are male or female ) --- and within those broader categories sometimes you and the psychologist just "click" and get on wel together, and sometimes somehow you don't quite fit together. If the woman you are seeing now is a skilled and experienced shrink, she should understand this, and should appreciate that it is no criticism of her that you may well get on better with a male psychologist. Is it practival to go back to the original shrink ? Maybe discuss this with her at the next session, making it clear, as you did here, that you don't want her to feel hurt, and admire her capabilities, but that you feel more comfortable with a male psychologist, and would she mind arranging for you to see either the original shrink, or some other male colleage --- she ought to be content to arrange that for you
