Eh, i guess females so at least if we touch on the subject of dating she being a therapist she might be more prone to tell me what girls like, i mean what they really like from a psychological standpoint, not the whole flowers and chocolates deal.

I'm female and my therapist is female but my psychiatrist is male. I am more comfortable with my therapist then I am with my psychiatrist. I don't know if it's because she's female or not but I like both my psychiatrist and therapist.

Male, because there are some things that would be uncomfortable to discuss with a female therapist.

I really don't have a preference. Right now I have a female counselor, but I used to have a male psychiatrist and I liked him just fine (switched from seeing a psych to seeing a counselor and an internist).

For the last four years, I have had a female psych and she is really good. Unfortunately, she resigned the day of my last appointment (she resigned BEFORE she saw me ). I have to find a new one to start in a few months.

I'm a female and I think I'd like to try a male counselor next. I had a female one before and just didn't like her all that much. She was a bit too pushy and kept trying to tell me that she 'knew how I felt.' Considering she doesn't have sa it got on my nerves.

I've only had one female counsellor before and one female therapist since, but as am currently waiting for further therapy sessions to be made available to me know that I'd rather see a female again. There are some things I just feel a whole lot more comfortable discussing with a female stranger as opposed to a male one - though I'm sure there are just as many good male therapists out there as female.

This is a good question, and sorry to update an old thread but, I prefer male counselors as most of the female ones ive seen were all *****y and didn't really say much to assist with anything. Some can be different but, I just find it easier to speak with a guy therapist.

I had a male therapist and I almost punch him lol
I think I should go for a female therapist next time, if she is hot the better, I have no problems to lay it down again.

And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard; it's hard to find
Oh well, whatever, never mind...

I hate defining a person by their gender but it feels like my life is one big paradox so will go ahead and do it anyway. I have to admit that after a year of a male therapist I wanted to try a female. It felt like with the guy, his bravado & ego became a hurdle too high for me to get over. My thought was that I'd have a greater chance finding someone more nurturing and empathic in a female.

I'm a female, but I always prefer a male therapist. I feel closer and more comfortable talking with my dad. So when I will be opening up to someone, I prefer a male because to me it's like a father figure.

Female. Since I suffered sexual harassing by men I don't find any point to talk about that stuff with a male.
