Interesting question, Blue. OK, like doctors, policemen, lawyers, teachers, etc., even one bad one is too much. I think the selection proces is faulty and not attended to properly, and some training programs are also seriously wanting. In the example you quote, it is outrageous that ANY psychologist would EVER spend your time ( which you are paying for ) to preach his religion to you --- that's not a psychologist, that's a fanatic, and he should be reported to the Halth professions Council for seriously improper conduct. If you have religious problems, you go to your minister / priest / imam, rabbi --- NOT to any psycghologist who should not meddle in an area for which you are not seeking help and in which he is not qualified. I hope when you very sensibly left this fanatic, you told him WHY you were leaving and advised him to see a good shrink to sort out his own problems which he was imposing on you.
