Psychotherapy: A Practical Review of Unethical Therapists
Psychotherapy can be challenging for therapist and client.
How has your experience with therapists been?
Do you feel on edge or do you feel welcomed and understood?
For those of you who have tried counseling, did you notice some odd behaviors in the therapist or behaviors that put you on edge?
For many patients/clients, it can be difficult to see anything bad about a professional. Why would you question someone with degrees, education, and possibly prestige? You wouldn’t.
This video will explore patterns of behaviors that may need to be looked at a bit closer.
I’ve gotten many emails from patients/clients who had negative encounters with unethical therapists. Unethical therapists range from mild, moderate, and severe. Being able to correctly identify an unethical therapist will require knowledge.
It’s important to think through what you are feeling and doing. The best case scenario would be to talk to the therapist and try to gather a broader understanding.
What should I do?
Ethical therapists always put their client’s first and know how to support them emotionally and psychologically. There is an honest care and concern for the wellbeing of the client.
An unethical therapist always caters to their own psychological, emotional, and sometimes physical needs. When this happens, clients need to take action by leaving the therapist, consulting with another professional, or pursuing a higher authority.
