I think asking for complete perfection from a therapist might be asking for too much.

If I were a therapist and my client keeps saying she/he wants to quit, I might also be concerned over whether he/she really likes me or wants to go a different therapist. One of the things therapist wants clients to do is to take responsibility for their healing. IF I were a therapist, I wouldn't want to force a client to keep coming to me even after repeated attempts to quit by a client. If once the client talks out of frustration, I might try to explore and find out what is really going on, but if the client keeps saying it again and again, I wouldn't really think it is my job to keep the client as my patient. I might also think maybe the client is not thinking I am a good fit for him/her or she is not capable of dealing with therapy right now and I don't want to push it etc.
