After hugging my therapist twice (I asked), he had told me that he can’t hug me anymore because it’s forbidden in therapy. Did he act professionally?

While there isn’t one way to act professionally as a therapist, setting appropriate boundaries is essential. Some therapists will disclose more personal information [...]

My new therapist doesn’t like me, I am unperturbed. However, he suggested that I don’t need therapy and am using it as a crutch. I disagree, how do I handle this with him?

A therapist getting annoyed by a client telling them they are depressed would be like a medical doctor getting annoyed at a patient [...]

During the last session with my therapist I felt weird, like we were somehow distant emotionally and I had this feeling that I can’t say anything right and that I was boring. I am very attached to him and feel so bad right now. Why did I feel this way?
