It's good that you recognize your resistance. Your therapist may be partially correct in not wanting to treat you any longer but her mode of treatment may be part of the problem. Maybe she's simply a lousy therapist, maybe you 2 are a bad match. Her reference to tapes she gave you LAST WINTER gave me the feeling that she may be stuck in a narrow groove regarding your treatment. I know little about phobias but I know a lot about major depression and melancholia. A good therapist should have the versatility to try various modes of treatment, including ways of dealing with resistance. Perhaps part of your resistance is because you don't like your therapist or her treatment doesn't make any sense to you. This isn't uncommon. Remember that you're the mental health consumer and like all consumers, have choices. My best suggestion is that you try another therapist and discuss your prior experiences and complaints as well as your condition. Again, remember that you are the consumer and have the right to expect respect and professional treatment.
