Many therapists are far too ‘opinionated’ and lack insight into complex trauma, and are there just to push their views and their own agenda’s. It is well known that therapists can be ego seekers and they push their own opinions, regardless of how that harms their clients. And too many therapists have big ego’s and work outside of their own capacity of insight and needed understanding of complex trauma.
I just read of a survivor who fired her therapist who kept on defending the clients narc mother, yet never even asked what the mother had done and didn’t even know details of the abuse. So the survivor hadn’t dealt with her emotions either.
So wrong and so damaging.
How dare that therapist demand that survivor dismiss the suffering caused and invalidate the survivors needed emotions, grieving etc.
How dare she demand that survivor have compassion for the narc mother. Narcs know what they are doing wrong, they enjoy it and have no empathy for their victims. That is not okay, not justifiable.
I am so sick of hearing about therapists defending abusers, harming already traumatised abuse survivors.
