She was actually quite lovely and understanding for the first few sessions. Critically challenging my ideas and offering new perspectives – it was great and I applied everything she said to my life. I’ve struggled mentally for a lot of my life. Was having a good day (after trying to implement her ideas and modes of thinking) she broke my heart by telling me – in plain language – “when I started talking to you, you were suffering with suicide & life was unbearable. I normally take on extreme circumstances & that no longer seems to be the case – but im happy to schedule a follow up appointment for 6 weeks time if you like” wording may not be perfect, but it was clear as day. I was honestly taken aback by the response and my silence queued her in, she tried to offer a better. Explanation. She was very direct, which I loved at first- but someone struggling with life doesn’t want to feel like even more of a burden, just because i was having a good day. I wasn’t doing bad enough anymore. I felt like a dumped girlfriend- shattered, I declined the follow up appointment, she already made me feel like I was wasting her time. Most important note – I had only had about 3-5 phone appointments with Denise, before being “dropped” as a client. It’s not like I was there years with some vast improvement. Will probably never reach out for help again. I’ll self medicate via my gp. Took me months to gain the courage to write this review. I’m just shattered because I finally felt I was getting somewhere and had a bond with a professional – then my heart was broken..
