This is my ‘client’s perspective’ contribution on googling one’s therapist, for the therapy website welldoing.org which has already published a number of posts (by therapists) on this subject. Although I have written about this topic in the past, my therapist and I spent a session talking about it again last week. She asked me how I felt about my googling, and those reflections resulted in this article – I hope it is helpful!

I suppose another way to think about googling one’s therapist is that her virtual presence is like a transitional object — a doll or similar material thing that gives the recipient a sense of security.
