Hi guys sorry I haven't posted for a while as I have been involved in a lot of recovery focused groups, doing a lot of very intense process work and after 9 years I have been able to return to work part-time.
I have been working with a Trauma T since mid 2014 and it has been a long hard slog. Jan and Feb of this year I just didn't want to attend...... I had huge emotional issues around my daughter starting to date and it triggered so much stuff for me. A couple of months ago I took part in a closed group for persons who had been or who were feeling suicidal. This is a closed group and lasts for 6 months, after a couple of weeks I asked my T if we could change the time of our session as I we meet the same day as the group. This was arranged.
But in all the years of theraphy with different groups I was so shocked at what happen that I just got up and left. I arrived at 11am for my app, which has alway been (2 years) 60 mins at 5 mins to go I heard a noise and I thought it was someone bumbing a chair off a wall in another room, and I ignored it but then suddenly my T is saying that's the 5 o'clock. And I'm shocked I didn't think we were gone over because we have checked that a couple of mins earlier.
Suddenly I found myself in the car.
What I want to ask is how is this allowed to happen. I did complain about it and the other T was saying that we only have the room for 50 mins. I sense I'm caught in a pissing competition between two T's.
However my question; is what this T did by knocking on the door as I'm finishing as session ethical and how should I complain. Because my hour is neither sacred or safe. For the past two weeks I am for the sake of a better word unsettled at the end of the session. I did nothing wrong yet I am the one paying the price. This T behaved in an very inappropriate manner and she was rewarded. In contrast I suffer. Why.
I do intent to take it further as my last two session this issue has sat on my back.
Thanks for reading.
