Probably a stupid question, but i've decided i'm going to book some time with a therapist. Anyone know what type of therapist i should i look for if i want a diagnosis, i don't know a lot about them and see all different names. My doctors nice but i don't to tell her some stuff if she's not going to do anything. I don't really want this on my record if nothing will be done. Am i correct in assuming a private therapist's stuff won't go on my main medical record. If i get diagnosed with something i want to tell my doctor, but if he says i'm just wierd i would rather it not be on my record. Thanks.
