(Sorry for the multiple threads.) Just as the title says.... do you prefer to see male or female therapists? Are you yourself male or female? I'm female, and the only therapists I've ever seen have been females. However, I had a call from a counsellor yesterday to say I've been allocated to him. I've never seen a male therapist before. I'm not sure if I'm totally comfortable with it or not. I'm not sure if it's something I should try. I like talking to males in general life more, as they usually can offer practical advice, and this is the kind of advice I think I would also want from a therapist. I think I hardly get anywhere with the female therapists, so maybe it would be good to try the alternative. I don't even know if I could request to see a female if I decided I was too uncomfortable with it. So yeah.. what are your experiences, and your thoughts? Who do you prefer to talk to?
