Thank you for your reply.
It is true that the woman said to me - there were no witnesses -
She disclosed that she had
shoplifted, been and alcoholic, had asbos issued against her and had been asked to defer her university completion because it was identified that she was in a manic state.
She had recovered from this kind of behaviour and mental state. And I admired her for this.
She believed in self disclosure to prove that with applying the therapy she provides she had recovered. I admired her for that UNTIL she started to display anger and manic activity towards me and became careful of her.
I have launched a complaint about her. She describes herself being angry irritable etc when she threw 'thumped' the file down etc. This made me very cautious as I did not want to be the next one she might choose to act her anger out on.
I would not write this but I do want to know the employer to know that according to her she has a past history of impulsive behaviour and possibly mental health issues. I know I must not be discriminatory but I must not be open to further attack and call for caution.
She acknowledged my admiration as i stated before by saying:
Thank you for your warm message.
it doesn’t surprise me that you can express such warmth, compassion and loving kindness towards another.
However, my self-disclosure, as a use of self, will be rendered meaningless unless this is contributing towards your being able
to apply those same loving qualities, patiently and congruently towards yourself.
I sincerely ***** ***** trust that it is.'
I look forward to hearing from you soon as I need to complete my letter.
