It seems your core concern is whether therapy is really helpig you and whether it CAN indeed help you. This is a complex question and it's absolutely ok to be confused about it. Maybe you can start with trusting yourself and your instincts more. Sit down and make a list (even if it's a free-associating list) of goals you have for your own self development, and problems you have that you feel need fixing. They can be big or small, the important thing is that they matter to you. next, when u see your T, start by outlining some of the issues you seem to work on. everything eventualy converges, but this will make u feel more in control. generally voicing these concerns to your T could also help. hang in there, we're here for you!
