    Responses To Your Therapist That You Will Probably Never Say

    I thought a thread of what you would like to really respond to your therapists cliches would be interesting.

    I'll start:

    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'

    I've never heard this from my current therapist. She is pretty good.

    I have an advantage over my therapist. I was an LPC 10 years before she was. So I have no problems telling her when she says something off the wall, "You learn that in Counseling 101?"

    I have no problem telling her "BS" if I see it necessary. But it's mutual. She will call BS on me also.

    Sounds like a fun relationship? A good Chant vs therapist youtube video would be funny!
    LOL! Well you can say our sessions are never dull. She knows better than to say cliche things to me. She says I don't have to say a word. My expressions alone tell her when she put her foot in her mouth.
