General Discussion / Seeing a therapist soon....a Social Worker student....
« Last post by Pleeb on December 07, 2017, 12:54:24 AM »
I mentioned on Dragonfly's post I would be seeing a Ph.D. psychology student as a therapist.

I'm mistaken - make that (probably) a M.S.W. student, not a psychology student.


Paul M. asked:
Hello Peter.  I am only guessing here but I presume the student would be under a doctors supervision. Do you know if the Doctor would see you once in a while or just review the students notes. I'm just curious, I've worked with students before, but never for psychology problems and I jut wondered how it works. If you decide to go that way, keep us informed. Thx and Take Care. paul m

Paul, I don't know any of that.  I saw my Nurse Practitioner yesterday, and spoke to the Social Work student today very briefly.

BTW, I could've seen a peer support worker at MDAO....  I did, once upon a time, but it didn't work out.


I'm seeing this person for procrastination and anxiety when multitasking.  Procrastination is old news, anxiety when multitasking is new.


I'll keep you guys informed...

Hi, Dragonfly....Nothing wrong with "a great deal lately," by the way.

Today, my nurse practitioner discussed me seeing a therapist, which would be a Ph.D. psychology student from Ryerson (?).

My nurse practitioner/Dr. are at a clinic that is part of St. Michael's Hospital....it's also physically close to the hospital.

I hope you post this is a very supportive place respectful and it will at times make you laugh and smile. There are a great bunch of people here. There is a lot of knowledge and help. And we can always use more in the group. It helped me so much over the years just knowing I have a safe place to vent is comforting

Hello Dave and welcome.  This is a peer support forum, which means support is based in mutual support provided by peers and/or loved ones, and friends.  While this isn't a chat room, it is a place where a person can receive support. It is more of a bulletin board style. If you have a question , problem or just feel like venting some, please do so, somebody will likely post a reply. Take Care. paul m

That was excellent, Buddy Mack, thank you for sharing.

Jeff Szymanski has been mentioned in the treatment program I'm attending a few times. I liked how he made reference to how disturbing it is for those of us with true OCD to hear people say "I have some OCD, or I used to have some OCD, I like my towels a certain way." Everything he talked about are things I'm learning in treatment, so he's very much a legitimate OCD resource.

Hope you're doing well.

Peace
