If you were a psychiatrist, who would you pay good money for to be on your couch?

    Bearing in mind, you could spend your money down the pub, taking your partner out for a meal or investing your money in lottery tickets, gold, or pension plans.

    If you were a psychiatrist, whose brain would you most like to comprehend?

    A cat's. I'm not that bothered about what makes people tick, but cats fascinate me. :)

    Errr. Isn't the point that they'd be paying me?

    Psychiatry is pseudoscience. If you want answers you may as well ask an astrologer. It's cheaper.

    So you think that people with PND/PTSD should read their star signs instead?

    Oh yeh. At my lowest ebb, understanding that Mercury was retrograde and Jupiter was in hard something to Pisces was a godsend.

    Jupiter and two boy twins? I bet Ganymede was furious.

    They can pay me.

    But, in that case, I do have a weakness for serial killers. Not quite sure why.

    I always say it's because I'm frightfully lazy and I simply don't understand the point of it. How can it possibly be worth it? What's the point? For such fleeting pleasure. And such risk of punishment.

    Scrap that. I think they would bore me after 5 minutes.

    To whom could I listen for 50 minutes without nodding off? Noel Fitzpatrick. Yes. Him.

    Serial killing is literally the same as gym membership without the monthly direct debit.

    Good money or not there are usually training costs borne before practice - they might be seen as a good investment if you had some of Stormy Daniels's et al on the couch (or is that just me :eek:)

    I'd go for Brian Cox, but I wouldn't waste time asking him questions.... well, not until afterwards, perhaps... :D

    Psychiatrists play a very important role in the current climate of so many mental health issues.

    They are good at inventing them.

    So you think mental health problems are invented, are not real and don't exist? You obviously have no understanding or experience of mental health issues.

    No, Cathy, I think psychiatrists are over keen to medicalise human experience supported by the pharmaceutical industry.
