My ex partner is currently seeing a psychologist since we separated a year ago. During this time he has had issues about the relationship ending. We have met up a year later and decided to take things slow and work out our relationship both agreeing on boundaries. My partner had his next appointment with his psychologist and she told him to end anything that is being started and to do so by text message and not see me again, she further went onto say that it will never work because we are both poisonous to each other and to top it off she pulled out a rope because my partner told her he thought of doing it when we broke up and that is how he came to get help, she told him does he want to end up that way again. He didn't want to end it but said she has made him feel he has to. I thought she would have told him to maybe cool it for a few more months, which I am willing to wait but what do I do if she is feeding him things like I am poisonous and also is this standard practice? We were together for over 5 years. Thank you.
You do not know what the psychologist actually said, as you only heard it from your former partner. Your description, of how this psychologist acted, seems strange. I wonder if your former partner really gave a correct account. Therapists usually do not tell people what to do, but help the patient to find out what alternatives he has and explore the consequences of those alternatives.
