> By the way, I had an interesting disussion with my current T about how different approaches to therapy put a different amount of emphasis on that attachment between client and therapist. My old T used a form that particularly encouraged attachment, which made the termination really hard. My new T uses a more egalitarian, collaborative mode, that does indeed make me feel less attached.
Hello again pegasus! I didn't want to hijac the other thread, so I thought I would pop this down here.
I was really interested in what you wrote above. Are you able to expand on it at all?
I have a real problem getting some sort of healthy attachment up and running with my T. I tend to run away at the first opportunity. I actually had to sign an agreement we wrote up together saying that I wouldn't up and cancel all my appointments. If I do want to leave, I have to attend two final sessions. Without that agreement I would have run away long ago.
I guess I'm really interested in hearing about the methods used to build a strong attachment. Thanks.
