<<<But in the meantime, I want someone to be there on the sidelines, saying, "Rah rah sis boom bah! That's the stuff, baby! You're DOING it!"

One of my homework assignments was to write about how I feel about therapy. I wrote about a swimming pool and had my Therapist on the side, cheering me on. His take on it was, "I see you are still keeping me out of the pool, not letting me help you." So I guess therapy isn't just the Therapist giving you the tools, cheering you on and providing support while YOU do all the work. I think they are in it with us, modeling what needs to be done, cheering when we "do it right" and letting us borrow their strength when we need to. There have been times, during an emotional flood, that my Therapist offers to "hold the hope" --- so he is doing the work for me at that moment, being the dam so to speak.

I think it really, again, is the fit of the client and the Therapist and the needs in the moment. And those change all the time.
