People Reveal The Worst Thing Their Therapist Ever Said To Them

People are seeking more mental health treatment today than ever before. For all the good and the bad that this implies, therapists are more in demand than ever, which inevitably means, there will be more supply. But more doesn't necessarily mean better, and not all therapists are created equal. For every good mental health professional out there, there are ten awful ones. It's like having to kiss a million frogs before finding your prince—it's kinda draining. People on Reddit shared the worst things that a therapist, psychiatrist, or mental health professional ever said to them, and the responses are so bad, they make you wonder how these professionals ever got their license in the first place.

    Nothing makes you feel quite as crap than sitting across from someone as you pour your heart out to them, only to have them FALL ASLEEP. Honestly, after an experience like this, I don't think I'd go to another therapist either!

    Font - cawbear 4 days ago My therapist which I just discontinued would literally order a meal and eat it right in front of me while literally saying nothing... she did that for the entire year I wasted with her, just watching this lady eat her food while saying nothing, only to then give me snarky and 2 word replies

    Falling asleep during therapy is bad, but it is closely followed by ordering and eating food when you're with a client. Honestly, the audacity of people!

    Font - assainXD1 4 days ago a I had a psychiatrist who was convinced I was anorexic even though I wasn't. It really sucked because my therapist and my psychiatrist worked at the same company and they had a policy where they don't help people with eating disorders. So even though I went to a specialist and they confirmed I didn't have an eating disorder I was still banned from that facility and lost my long term therapist.

    Font - sgrmw 4 days ago I was dealing with a lot of family issues at the time and my ex had just broken up with me that week so I was taking it fairly hard. My therapist said "it's because they found someone better" and when I said no and tried to explain she just dug in deeper that my ex had dumped me because they found someone better than me.

    Font - HMB43 4 days ago I was fresh out of high school and really depressed. No friends, horrible relationship with my mom and step dad, no one to confide in. I gave in after being pressured to see someone because mental health issues run in my family. I booked an hour assessment. I was in and out within 20 minutes. Dude completely dismissed me because I was young and "every young person goes through these things. Everyone worries about their future, this is totally normal." Took me 3 years to g
