Most of the mental health professionals I have been to have been exceedingly arrogant
Yes, my experiences exactly.
(with at least a single exception; the last psychologist I saw, a younger woman, wasn't like that at all).
I've noticed that less experienced, younger therapists, such as interns, tend to be nicer, better listeners, and less judgmental. They're new and they're trying harder.
Also, when I've called crisis hotlines and friendship lines, the volunteers tend to be empathetic and compassionate.
I'm still desperate for therapy/counseling despite all my terrible, abusive experiences with therapists. And I'm focusing my search on less experienced interns or volunteers because I think they'd be kinder and easier to work with.
It's horrendous that therapists are routinely so abusive to people. Therapy, of all professions, should only attract people who genuinely want to help all
their clients. But instead, therapists play favorites. They're only kind and supportive to the clients that they like or find attractive or whatever. Humans are shockingly judgmental and cruel.
