I've come across sympathetic psychologists in my reading. Ellen Goudsmit is one who comes to mind (even if we don't see eye-to-eye on everything and have had a few tiffs in our time). Both LJ and EG are both patients as well of course. I think I've come across more sympathetic psychologists than psychiatrists: in case anyone doesn't know the different, a psychiatrist is somebody who is a qualified doctor (has a medical degree) who then goes on to do exams to be qualified as a psychiatrist. A psychologist doesn't have a medical degree (unless they do!).
