When you're dealing with mental health issues, therapy can be a godsend — but it's also important to remember that therapists are people, too, and people are capable of some pretty WTF behavior.

A recent Reddit thread asked people to share the things their therapists told them or did, that totally caught them off guard. Some of the answers are funny, some are shockingly good and some... well, not so much.

1. Sometimes, your parent is the problem.

I had a therapist tell me when I was a teenager that she didn't know what else to do to help me because it seemed like I already understood everything pretty well. This was after my overbearing and crazy helicopter mom dragged me in for being depressed. Then she switched to therapy-ing my mom and my mom quickly was in tears because she has the emotional strength of a child and wanted it to be about me when it was actually all about her.
