What do you think of when you think of a therapist?
If I'm honest, when I think of a traditional therapist I get a image of the original therapy poster boy Freud - a tweedy older man in authority who looks, frankly, terrifying!
(Sorry Freud fans!)
Or there's the middle aged, middle class white woman who's looking for something to do now the kids have flown the nest.
Is that what the public perception of counselling is, that we are all tweedy busy-bodies looking down our noses at people and observing them?
