My therapist just claimed to have psychic abilities, to feel a client’s emotions and then remove them (not an analogy). What should I do?
This is a difficult situation and you must proceed with caution. If your therapist has claimed to have psychic abilities to feel and manipulate your emotions, it is important that you take their claims seriously. Psychic practices are often viewed skeptically in the scientific community and can lead to harmful outcomes for patients. It would be best for you to get a second opinion from another therapist who does not claim these kinds of powers. Additionally, talking to other professionals may give you the guidance you need. Finally, trust your instincts; if you feel uncomfortable in any way then it is best to seek help from someone else.
It is important to trust your instincts when it comes to seeking therapy. If you feel uncomfortable with your therapist’s claims to have psychic abilities, then it may be best to end the session and look for another therapist who aligns more closely with your standards of care.
