"Counsellor at drug & alcohol service."

About: ReGen - Inner North

(as a service user),

I cried throughout many sessions & she would kinda laugh & say "omg you're so depressed". Told me off for wanting to leave job where I was being bullied. Would hand me self help worksheets and tell me to bring them back next session, would tell me off for not doing them. I was extremely depressed, should not place expectations on a person in such a state. Pulled the plug at our 3rd session, said that the service only offers 4 counselling sessions per client. The counsellor had absolutely no empathy or patience, I felt so awful about myself for a long time after seeing this person. I want to know if anyone has had similar experience with this service.
