Psychotherapists: How Their Diagnoses Impact Lives

Psychotherapists assign formal labels to clients so that clients can file for insurance. What people do not know about that process hurts them on very many levels.

The insurance companies employ non-therapists to make decisions about how many visits and what kind of therapies to approve. Non-therapist money managers, hired to keep the insurance company not just in the black but profitable, make decisions that affect lives all day long, day after day.

Psychotherapists often find themselves assigning diagnostic labels that do not accurately fit clients because they know some diagnoses have a higher likelihood of getting more treatments okayed than do other diagnoses.

Hmm.

Do you know what happens when those labels get recorded in personal records?

The insurance company may sell their list and the information in those reports may go to companies that clear possible employees for a job.

If you already work some place and use your company insurance seeking talk therapy your employer will know about your personal life—the parts no one should know but you, right?

No wonder so many people seeking psychotherapy pay their own way. They protect themselves from making what should be private public!

Many people do not even know their records reflect diagnoses that label them – not as people but as sufferers of disorders like depression, bi-polar, or schizophrenic. Consequently when those clients move to a new therapist their label preceeds them.

Unfortunately many psychotherapists, overloaded with too heavy case loads, peruse the records of new patients – basically looking for the label that some other therapist assigned – making a value judgment that may or may not be accurate.

When I worked as a psychotherapist I wrote my reports as if the client was reading over my shoulder. People have a right to know how others view them – and judge them to be.

Better yet, people want to know their answers lie within themselves NOT outside in the mind of somebody else.

Psychotherapy Misses The Spiritual Connection

Psychotherapy, by avoiding the spiritual aspect of life, misses the basic causes of all issues.

While working as a psychotherapist I recall learning that forgiveness is something you do for yourself.

Obviously that fact is true.

I also learned that not forgiving someone is like eating poison and expecting the other person (the one you refuse to forgive) to die.

On a physiological level that statement rings true too.

What if forgiveness is less about letting go of the hurtful deed you felt at another’s hands and more about seeing the gift in the event?

What if forgiveness means for giving love to the one you think hurt you.

Most psychotherapists rightfully stride to separate religion from talk therapy. Yet you cannot disregard spirituality when working with a person. People are Divine Spirits living human experiences.

Unless you live in a cave in some remote high mountains you know everything and everyone, including us, is energy – spirits temporarily housed in human bodies. You also heard that we are all connected as One.

The left brain, housing your ego mind, stands guard to prevent your living in that truth lest it lose all the power it has over you.

When someone seems to do something hurtful to you realize they are gifting you the opportunity to grow and evolve your Spirit to a higher level. Give them love for what they did that forced you to take steps you would no have taken otherwise.

Send them love for being in your life.

On a spiritual level each and every person in your world agreed to come here in this lifetime to teach lessons to each other. When you look for the gift in every situation you will discover what you learned. Then you will truly feel love.

Forgiving means for giving love in every sense of the word.

That action does more than just free you. It reminds you of the Universal Laws that govern the world – whether or not you know about or believe them.

Why stay stuck in pain? Choose to reveal the lessons learned through pain and disappointment that move you forward in life.
