I thought a thread of what you would like to really respond to your therapists cliches would be interesting.
In response to the "how has your mood been?"
You mean I am paying YOU and still have to spell it out? You must not be good at reading people.
'So, what can you take away from this session'
and I always think 'well, that lily on your desk would look nice in my lounge'
Another of his is, 'You've done really well today, you should feel proud'
and I want to shout 'oh yeah, right, I bet you say that to all your clients'
