What are your thoughts on therapists suggesting people break up with their partners?Watch
Emotional can be difficult to discern but say if I told a therapist I was being beaten, I don't think it would be wise for the therapist to say that is a healthy relationship. That seems clear cut to me. Emotional and mental while still abuse can be more tricky and a therapist has to be careful not to get the wrong end of the stick.
But in the end that’s all it is: an opinion. Sure a good friend will tell you they don’t think it’s healthy in the same way a therapist can, but neither have any power over your actions. A therapist just objectively provides they can give their own professional opinion based on What you’ve told them.
Also perhaps the fact that the topic of boyfriends was even brought up in the first place may indicate a subconscious concern someone might have that the therapist may have noticed idk just my opinion
