1) RED FLAG1: Lacked empathy.
Blaming the client for the very shortcomings for which they seek treatment.

You go to an ortho doctor for remedy for soft weak bones due to which you keep falling down n get yourself fractured. And the doctor scolds you, "What's the point of regretting after falling down! You deliberately fall down n end up with fracture?"
Does it make any sense?

I went to this therapist for managing rage due to flashbacks from traumatic past affecting my life n relationships with my baby n husband. And the doctor scolds me, "What's the point of apologizing to your husband after rage when you don't mean it! You say what you have to n destroy everything with your words"

What a style of therapy!
Does that help me in overcoming my rage?
The very reason I proactively sought therapy means I am aware of the immense damage it's causing n I need help.

2) She assumes n keeps speaking. She doesn't ask probing questions for better understanding.

3) She seems obsessed with her voice. She doesn't mind even interrupting client. Introverted people like me, especially, those who struggle with expressing feelings verbally, experience a hard time n I struggled to express feelings freely.

4) She is not a good listener.

Passed judgmental remarks twice during first half of very first session.
People with traumatic past who have been abused, accused, blamed, treated like physical outline without feelings, treated like doormats, all this by one's own mother because of her Narcissistic Personality Disorder-----such people are living on the verge of a steep cliff, dealing with suicidal thoughts.

Judgmental remarks n pin pointing flaws do considerable damage. They should instead choose to help them heal n move to a safer area, first n foremost.

6) Therapist lacks insight into nature of Complex Trauma. Shallow knowledge on complex trauma.
She said, "Even when trauma is gone, they feel smug in continuing in a victim loop"
True for one time event like PTSD.
But in CPTSD, trauma never stops because your disordered mother keeps abusing you not only as long as she lives but even after her death because the client feels trapped by and unable to run away from the voice of mother in the head.

7) Lacked empathy and failed to validate my feelings. Opportunity for connecting with client lost.

8) She interrupts, cuts short my sentences and misinterprets n starts advising me.
Eg. If I want to say, "Difference of opinion doesn't exist between my husband n me"
She will interrupt as soon as I say the words "Difference of opinion…" jump the gun and start lecturing me on how difference of opinion is a normal part of relationship n tips on how to solve it.

9) Partly, I hold PRACTO responsible for failing to provide me with an expert on cptsd or complex trauma. Please check the numerous mails to customer care.

Call me, if you must, ONLY when you have found a therapist who understands first hand what complex trauma is, a therapist who has undergone that themselves & done self healing.
