| | Question about MC/IC "Poisoning her mind"?
I've been on here for a little over a month and really appreciate all the insight and advice I've seen. I just need a reality check.
We have been in MC for about 3 months with (mostly) weekly sessions. I started IC about some of my personal issues with a therapist I worked with years ago for depression. I was happy to share with the W some of the things we discussed as I felt that he connected some important dots for me to help me move forward. I had one IC session with our MC a few weeks ago when my wife decided she needed a break from it - which was fine with me and that session was nothing terribly memorable.
She went to our MC for IC this past week. I was curious about what was discussed but didn't ask initially. This morning during a mildly heated 'discussion' I asked her if there was anything raised inthe session that she'd like to discuss. She replied, "No,are you concerned with him poisoning my mind." Huh? (This may not have been a direct quote but the word 'poison' was used.)
A little while later, i told her that I found her response curious (to say the least). In my mind, i asked a neutral question, but from her perspective, within the context of the conversation in which I posed the question, I came across as being defensive. Which is in the realm of possibility - although not my direct intent. She also said from a previous IC with him that he told her 'she was bending over backwards for me.'
Any reason(s) for concern here? We're going back as a C to MC tomorrow. Any thoughts on using the same therapist for MC, IC, etc? Thanks
