What are you looking for?
3 months ago · Counseling,
You suggested that I start some weekly counselling sessions that specialize in emotional therapy. Then you disappeared for a month and when I reached out to make an appointment - you then stated that you would be taking a training program for 6 months and if I needed assistance to reach out. (All of a sudden - I was in a good place)
I remembered you said you would contact me and it wasn’t until I contacted you that you spoke.
What I thought was funny - you’re nonchalant response as if you had no memory of what occurred. As if you hadn’t spoken to me in 6 mos and then had the gall to say that I could contact you in the future.
Now I know why some people are against counselling. I felt like you took all of the negative experiences and did just that as a cop out. Instead of being honest and allowing me the space to begin with someone who could really be consistent in the way that I needed.
Speaking as someone from a social services background - I get why so many counsellors are burnt out. However, I also don’t understand why so many take on more than they can realistically assist.
I guess the system just doesn’t see value in paying them for the work that they do. It’s also unfortunate when a person has to consistently focus on paid work and academics (in order to really go for the position)
You showed me who you really are professionally and I am truly disappointed.
Even though I discovered a lot on my own. This really challenges that tired old speech of when people say that you can’t do it alone….yet - some of us (me) are given no choice.
I will not ever use your services again nor will I recommend anyone to you.
Why would I continue services with you if I was instructed to find someone else within the timeframe that you disappeared?
I called you out and you didn’t even respond. Lol.
Thanks for proving me right.
