[ - ] I recently went through an anxiety attack and in the middle of it when I was looking around for support never remembered that I'm currently seeing a therapist every other week. It actually occurred to me that maybe I should call my old therapist in another city who I haven't seen in a few years (and said I could call him any time). When dh reminded me about my current therapist I thought 'he'll just take a couple days to get back to me and then offer to schedule an appointment for next week.' I have an appointment with him tomorrow. Do I bring this up with him, or just look for a new therapist? Thx. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Have you ever tried calling your current therapist with a more urgent situation? Truthfully, calling someone after being anxious (doesn't sound like you went to the ER or had symptoms that severe. Or did you?) isn't something that your old therapist would immediately call you back for. Returning a client's call with the offer to briefly talk on the phone or to schedule an appointment seems reasonable. When your old therapist said "call anytime," I doubt s/he meant s/he would interrupt what s/he was doing to take your call at the exact moment. [ Reply | More ]

If you don't feel your therapist is somebody you would want to turn to Ina crisis that would concern me. Yes, nobody is always available at a moment's notice, but he should enter your mind as the person to turn to, and he should call you back within 24 hrs and he should be able to offer a few min guidance.
