It was uncomfortable
It was awkward
It was a very long hour
The girls were clearly uneasy and displayed it in the most bizarre way. They were rude, they talked over the therapist, they blanked him, they laughed in a garish manner, they played loudly, they acted oddly, they were seriously hyped. It was a peculiar situation so it was to be expected, still, it was very bizarre and unsettling to watch.
What made it worse I felt, was my unprepared state. I didn’t know if I should correct the girls for their rude behaviour and calm them or just leave them to it. I didn’t know what I was supposed to say or if I was supposed to be discreet in front of the girls or just speak openly, when the girls answered the therapists questions incorrectly, should I have prompted them with the right answer?
The next appointment is in 3 weeks time which is much longer than the weekly appointments I had originally thought were taking place.
I know it was only the first appointment but I’m not sure how this is supposed to help them?!
I dont think im going to like these sessions very much, I feel emotionally drained and I’m not even the one in therapy, am I?
