I've had that happen. After my third session and get comfortable with talking to her and she up and leaves the business and the poor receptionist has to ring and tell everyone.

Sometimes that's in everybody's best interest, though. It's a psychologist's job to refer you to someone else who can help you better, if they realise they aren't the best fit for you. I hope that is what happened and they did it with the proper professionality and care, because giving the client the impression that they're abondoning them should definitely be avoided.

I've been released from several specialty clinics for having a general health record that's "too complicated" for them to treat me, so I can understand how bad that feels, especially if they don't refer you to someone. Or at least suggest where to go from there. Even then, hearing some variant of, "I can't/won't help you, move along," from someone that you already had to find on your own is never pleasant. 

 

Hope you find a good doctor soon, OP.

Of course not.  However, I would expect a mechanic to examine the car and listen to it.  You know, like a psychologist would examine the patient and listen to them. It's a bit tough to see mental illness, you know.  Can't just pop up the hood and look inside.
