I am going to stop going to my therapist. For one, I feel a lot better. But also because I don't think she's very good. Instead of providing insight or asking questions about why I feel the way I do, she offers pracitcal advice. Like she tells me to exercise. Or to take time off. Stuff I can read in any trite magazine article on ppd. She doesn't explore my feelings deeper and she doesn't encourage me to. So I just feel like it's a waste of time. And she also offers parenting advice unsolicited. So a mom comes to you, already feeling insecure, and you offer advice or tell her she doesn't need to do things that way, jsut making her feel more insecure?!?!?! At our very first appointment, she told me to start giving dd rice cereal in a bottle at night. I just brushed it off, but it's continued. So I am going to send her an e-mail cancelling our appt. and telling her I won't be back, but do you think I should go into my reasons for not coming back? In some ways I feel like it could help her as a therapist to know this stuff, but I also don't want to hurt her feelings. THoughts?
