Will the personality and demeanor of the therapist make a big difference if he or she is using CBT? The last therapist I saw less than 10 times because I just didn't feel a connection.
I think a standard course of CBT is like betwee 6-10 sessions I understand.
In my case, the therapist was the only one on the site within 10 miles of my home, so I didnt have much choice.
I did notice that most of them did a free sort of trial session with them to see if it worked. Maybe its worth going to see a few...
