Thread Name: BS: psychotherapy/counselling
Subject: RE: BS: psychotherapy/counselling
First thing I think is: good thing if practitioner is sufficiently educated in the profession. There are far too many self-styled counsellors out there who practice out of their nether parts, and may do more harm than good. This is one field where I believe, as a general rule, that the more educated the better. I wouldn't let an EMT perform heart surgery on me, I won't let a social worker diagnose my psychiatric issues.
