The Fat Decimator System

In the recent past, my therapist had said something to me that made me feel uncomfortable as well as uncertain about how he feels towards me. He has stated that I’ve always been his favorite client after I had told him that I liked him as a therapist.

I was getting ready to leave after a session and he followed me out of the room and said, “I hope you enjoy this warm weather such as yourself”. Then he quickly fixed what he had said by saying, “such as today”. After that day, I came in to see him again for the next session and he was touching his face a lot. He would also fix his hair whenever I’d fix mine, he’d sit back whenever I’d sit back, or cross his arms whenever I’d cross my arms. He normally doesn’t grin a lot whenever I’d talk to him, but he’s been doing that more often around me now. He also gives off this nervous giggle as I’d leave his office. He’s married and I noticed that he would sometimes twist/slide his wedding ring on his finger when it’s just in individual therapy. I’m also in group therapy with him and he doesn’t do that with his wedding ring at all while I’m in the group with him. During these group therapy sessions, he’d would always try to sit next to me even when there are other seats open and available for him to sit in next to other clients. I would try to switch up my spot to another location to see if he’d would follow me or not and he never fails to sit next to me. He’d also use the same word/phrase that I’d use. While we were in the group, I tested it out by saying that I was feeling pretty stoked about a certain thing and then he said that he was feeling pretty stoked about that same thing. He only copies me and none of the other members within the group.

I might add that it wouldn’t hurt to advise your therapist that you sense something that makes you a little uncomfortable in his presence. His subtle commentary is confusing.He is a trained professional, and if he has been purposely sending signals; that might be all that it takes to reset the situation back to where it belongs. It would be better to get another therapist who also offers group-therapy.Doctors and counselors are professionals. Even if they have a favorite patient, or feel attracted; true health-professionals watch their language, mind their conduct, and keep unprofessional advances to themselves.Words of encouragement are fine, favoritism is unprofessional. God only knows what a favorite patient must mean in this case.

Health And Fitness 98df9f73-904a-4dd9-a948-14179b833b87 What is going on with my psychotherapist? Is he interested in me? Relationship & Sex    Time to change therapist.Whether he is interest or not, is a moot point. Because if he acted on it it would be a violation of ethics and pretty improper behavior.He is mimicking (copying you) for a reason, which is (thus far) unknown. Fidgeting with his wedding band may not be anything more than a habit. I know plenty of married people who do that regardless of whom they are talking to.I would switch therapist – because you are now more focused on WHAT he does and says then working on yourself. And you did mention that he made you feel uncomfortable. Which are BOTH big no-nos.

You are a very observant person. You are also highly perceptive, if you pickup so many cues and details.It may be time to find a new therapist. If he can’t maintain an appropriate patient and professional relationship with you as a client; he should be fired and replaced. You’re noticing far too much in his behavior for that not to be the case. Not knowing if you suffer paranoia or the nature of your mental-health; we can only make gross generalizations and speculations here.I’d bring the whole situation to rest by finding a new therapist. It would eliminate any misgivings on either side of this situation.
