    Try considering that you did not make a mistake. You made the best choice given the information and circumstances. Regardless of treatment choice, peoples' outcomes vary as we are all unique. Maybe what you need to concentrate on is where you are now and what you can do now.

    Seeing a therapist is a good idea but... I would suggest getting an independent one. In the UK a counsellor would be considered as having a conflict if interest if they were involved in a patient's care in any other way than therapy. The previous conversations you had with him may influence future conversations.

    Good luck!
