Therapist has english as a second lanuage

Postby 5020 » Sun Aug 21, 2016 3:56 pm

Has anyone experienced the difficulties that come with this. I feel they understand what i say but sometimes their replies seem limited. They have used phrases like 'lowly' or junior roles when refering to my new job. As well as describing a condition as not normal. It means i have to be reall y consideriate about lanuage and expression which i otherwise might not be.

Depending on what illness you have it might be a good chance to work on certain schemas or triggers brought up by the language limitation that might not show that much in a different scenario. If you find that the language problem makes it too hard for you to have any gain from therapy then of course theres no blame in looking for a native speaker.
