Our expert says:
It does sound as though this psychologist either seriously mishandled the consultation, or perhaps entirely misunderstood what you thought would be its purpose. Maybe he thought this was primarily to be a consultation with your husband, about his problems, with you merely present as a supplementary informant --- though even in that case, he should have taken time to listen particularly to what you had to say.
Of course you're not being stupid, and your reaction to this odd meeting is entirely understandable. It also sounds not merely clumy on the shrink's side, but as though this shrink only really deals with individual therapy, and is uneasy working with a couple.
Don't blame yourself at all. Maybe it is wise to deal with your husband's main problems first, but the way this shrink handled it leaves you with no support or asistance for yourself until such time as he then recommends you start marriage counselling. Have you spoken gently to your husband about how you felt about this session, to see what he felt about it ?
