It was a joke. The initial conversation was she said she wished she could take away my pain and erase the past abuse. I then said something like you mean you dont have a magic wand? We then dmade a few comments like that. After that day when I was really struggling one of us would comment about the magic wand and them not giving her one with her license. A fee times I asked if there were a magic wand class she could take. I told her I would gladly pay for her to take it.

I think I would not have found this irritating when I first started therapy and did not know too much about it, I probably would have just seen in as a set of instructions, like with a medical procedure. I find it very irritating now. It is making a lot of assumptions and has an authoritarian tone, which I despise about a therapist.

Here's what I wish people knew about therapy... it's all about the therapist.

Knowing this will save people a lot of grief, more so than learning to obey the precepts outlined by the above Super Mommy 2.0.

Hmm. My therapy was all about me.

I agree with the tone being highly obnoxious.
