> If you are working with a good therapist preferably with a PHD and psychodynamic therapy is taking place, simply making you feel good and comforting you is not the goal. You should not always feel comfortable. Therapy is hard and you have to do a lot of hard work to have success with it.
There have been times when, after a psychotherapy session (IPT), I felt as if I just finished a workout at the gym. Mental work is still physiological work. This even shows in a P.E.T. scan when one is asked to perform mental exercises.
