OMG, I can't believe I'm about to sound like my therapist. And say what he told me so many times.

There may come a time when my therapist lets me down. But he won't be "stabbing me in the back", because he will never have the intent of letting me down or the intent to hurt me. Life might happen. He might get sick or have to move or die or be forced to stop practicing even part time. But he'll do his best not to hurt me along the way.

And there will be a difference, even though it doesn't feel like it. Like my best friend moved hundreds of miles away and we hardly ever see or hear from him any more. It still felt bad. But it wasn't a betrayal.

By the way, I trust my therapist now because I knew he didn't like me for the first few years of therapy, but he behaved well anyway. I've told him so. He says he just didn't know me well enough then. And I don't get the same feeling that he doesn't like me anymore. I think I exasperate him, but I don't think he dislikes me.
