Psychiatry?

My partner had a traumatic childhood, which caught up with her later in life (but before I met her).

She was referred to a psychiatrist. When she went, the psychiatrist sat there waiting for my partner to 'open up', which she couldn't. After half an hour, the psychiatrist said that the time was up and the 'session' ended. This happened every weekly visit for a year, without any progress!

Is this normal in psychiatry? Surely if a strategy wasn't working, the psychiatrist would try another? In medicine, if a patient has an infection that doesn't respond to one antibiotic, the treatment would be changed until one works.
