"Psychiatrist was contradicting me"

About: Coventry And Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust / Adult mental health

(as the patient),

I am currently a patient at St Michael's hospital while I await psychology. I had an appointment with the psychiatrist at St Michael's however the whole appointment was more detrimental to me.

I was in a room with someone I had no idea why needed to be there, the psychiatrist it felt like was contradicting me constantly talking to me like I was stupid to the point where I almost felt like saying "you know what I'd rather deal with it my self on my own".

I left feeling very angry upset and anxious about going back. I feel like the Dr in question was trying to get a reaction out of me.

Don't get me wrong some of the staff are lovely there but others just don't seem to fit the area they work in.
