The New Observer Psychotherapy The horror the horror

The horror the horror

The depths of the betrayal which psychotherapists are engaged in is beyond what a normal person can even conceive of.

To present yourself as being an expert in human affairs when you are nothing of the kind.

To say that you care deeply about every client/patient when, in reality, you couldn’t give too hoots and will forget them the very moment the money stops flowing in.

To claim that you are a beacon of humanity in a society which has ‘gone adrift’ when you are simply cashing in on the loneliness prevalent in that society.

Would that it were some kind of ultimate cynical betrayal. But, in reality, it probably isn’t. In reality it’s just another piece of immaturity in a consumerist and alienated society.
