Awwww…..keep your pants on I am getting to it….
No, really, I mean keep your pants ON!
All seriousness aside, I have heard therapists complain that dress clothes are off-putting to their clients, supposedly creating more of a power dis-equilibrium, but I think getting naked it taking it to a pathological extreme? What is next, fetish dressing?
The naked therapist’s attempt to connect naked therapy with Freud is, at best, misguided. Freud used free association to let your mind go where it needed to, believing that if you talked long enough uncensored, the root of the issues would come out. She is proposing letting your hands wander, and let me tell you, what is coming out is certainly NOT the root of the issue. Considering she is targeting male clients, I wonder if Freud would say she is suffering from penis envy. HMmmmmm.
How exactly does staring at this naked woman really help
JohnTom fix his marriage? The naked therapist is not licensed or certified as a counselor. She is not regulated by anybody.
When you look for a counselor, make sure he or she is licensed and in good standing. These people have been trained to identify signs that there may be a bigger problem or you are getting worse. They also take an oath to “above all do no harm.” Make sure you understand, by the end of the assessment, how he or she is going to help you solve your problems. If it does not make sense, question it. There are a lot of people out there (even licensed ones) using practices that are not commonly accepted. This does not mean they are bad, but it is important to make sure you believe it will work for you.
If you can think of a possible reason why it would make sense to pay $150/hour for a naked, unlicensed “therapist” to talk to you, please share. I am at a loss…
