I didn't read the whole thread. But just good luck, pal.
'Cause nowdays therapyst aren't really professionale. The brain is a really complex part of our body.

Also, depend from what is the issue that move you to start the therapy.

I think all therapists think is money and they want to have it without working..just 20 mind a session he thinks I don't have any serious trouble but he is terribly wrong..what can I do in this situation..I hide my problems I think.

You are too afraid to do something as safe and secure as trying to learn salsa. That is serious.

I don't understand why you're getting only 20 minutes per session. You can barely get started in that short time.

The prob is at guy he directs the talking and ends in 20 mins. Maybe he is lazy anyways I'm not well with that. I suffer I tell him but he doesn't want to spend time.

Okay, it looks like you may have a bad therapist. Be frank with him. Ask him to explain his plan for your emotional health. Tell him you're uncomfortable with the brevity of your sessions and that you're not getting to talk about what matters to you.

If he can't reassure you that he knows what's going on and how to help you, ask him to refer you to someone else who can help.

Asking him to refer me to someone else may be inappropriate but I will tell him that I suffer and such short sessions don't help

Okay, start with that. Just keep in mind that you're paying this person, and you're the one who decides whether his technique is working for you. You need to be honest with him. If he throws you out, you'll know he doesn't care.

I'm hoping he can reassure you he knows what he's doing, but to be honest it doesn't sound like that.

It can take a long time to find the right therapist. Oftentimes you're better off talking to someone you already know and trust, completely unqualified but a person who lets you know they care about you. If this guy doesn't seem to care, he's a dud.

They just care for money not even a bit for our health. They exploit weak people like me. Maybe change therapist do you know anyone in antep :D

I don't know if that's true. I've met a lot of therapists in England and Australia, and all of them cared a lot even if they couldn't help. There were some who waived fees for clients who couldn't afford to pay. Maybe it's different in Turkey, but that doesn't seem likely to me.

It's like we say to young people who can't find a mate: "You just haven't met the right person yet." I know that's cold comfort for you, but I don't think you're a weak man. It takes a lot of strength to keep plodding on day after day with a serious mental health issue.

do you know anyone in antep :D


Yeah, a guy who goes by the name of desperate. He's one of my most treasured friends. :D

Thank you so much candid for compliment..I'm honoured. Unfortunately I was born in a wrong country things would be much better if I lived in Europe or USA. There is nothing I can do about it. Therapist doesn't even talk useless things to make it a session such a disrespect such confidence
