Something my therapist said…

so today eileen was telling me how when she was doing her masters she did some research into the medical model versus the recovery model.

she said one phrase that really stuck with her when looking at the recovery model was

“nothing about me, without me”

I must say I loved this. It says it so well. All therapy whether with a psychiatrist, therapist etc should be a 50 50 partnership between therapist and client.

Mine is. And I am so thankful for that fact.

  1. I have to say it again, that you are really really lucky to have such a good therapist. And that’s really how it should be in therapy. 🙂 It’s so good she cares about it, because not all therapists do.
