I think Psychologists are the ones that need therapy
I have come to the realisation that the psychologists the Family Court employs as their s133 Report Writers are available because they would not be accepted in the reality world of psychoanalysts.
I have discovered this first hand when my partner and I were ‘advised’ by the Court that a fifth, yes 5th s133 report was going to be prepared regarding my partner’s youngest child’s cry about the treatment he was and is receiving from his mother. We fought for a new psychologist and were welcomed with the news that a Ms T from West Auckland would be constructing the report by way of interviews etc. you know the drill.
Well Ms T contacted my partner telling him the days she would be coming; this was a little over a week before the announced dates. She told my partner of HER planned schedule, my partner advised her what time he could manage off work at such short notice, as one of the days were through the week and my partner is a foreman with the responsibility of human lives.
To cut through the usual rigmarole of the muscling in ‘psychologist’ the two days for the s133 report writer to ‘do her thing’ was arranged.
HOWEVER, the psychologist wanted to interview my partner’s oldest child, now 16, who has been through the last four reports and has adamantly TOLD us that she has had enough over the last 8 years.To which the psychologist ‘tactfully’ remarked “OH, DOESN’T SHE SUPPORT HER BROTHER. DOESN’T SHE LOVE HER BROTHER?”
When both my partner and I advised her that these remarks were not of a professional nature, she, for want of a better phrase, got her knickers in a knot.
Upon the psychologist hearing from myself and later my partner that any such discussions or interview would be taped she …. you can see the pattern.
On the day of the arranged time for the psychologist to meet for the first interview she phoned my partner at work and … cancelled…. when my partner asked why, she stated that that she would not be dictated to by me.
Use the step mum as the escape goat yet again.
My partner received a letter in the post ‘Judges Minutes’ requiring a response from my partner as his and his partner’s unwillingness to cooperate with Ms T.
So I have now come to the conclusion that my assumption was fully supported in regards to the Family Court’s s133 Report Writers. They surely would not be accepted into the reality world of psychoanalysts.
