The reason I left my old therapist is a long story. If you really want to know, I'll find the posts and you can have all the gory details.

The short version is that I was in a transference with her where I thought she was mad at me. This caused me to panic and do everything I could think of to be the perfect patient. She was a CBT therapist, and not particularly interested in transference. Things got worse and I was in a lot of pain. I was very dependent. She took my case to her supervision group and they said that if I wasn't less dependent in a couple of months that she should make me find a new therapist. Of course, this panicked me even more. But once I actually thought about getting a different therapist and finally I had some hope. It was so hard to leave her (it is still hard - we are working on this in therapy now). But I am now moving (hopefully forward) in therapy.

My new therapist is Psychodynamic (Psychology of the Self). He knows all about transference. It is quite different.
