Fear is generally considered a negative emotion. But while fear can be sometimes irrational and keep you from chasing your dreams, it can also keep you safe and prevent you from putting yourself in danger and taking unmitigated risks.
By Dr Simon Moss, Associate Professor - Psychology at CDU. A great therapist often mirrors a great steak: rare, tender, expensive—and not too hot. Yet, many therapists are not great. Indeed, some therapists are downright horrid. In one instance, a woman, approaching 30, plagued with issues of abandonment, complained that her therapist would often forget to arrive. And, if the therapist did arrive, he would dedicate most of the session to filing his nails or completing errands. One session was even convened in his car, while he drove to buy lotto tickets and KFC. While waiting in the drive-through, the client began to discuss her problems.
