Hi SV,

I'm glad you called her and talked to her. And I think all your ideas are very good, particularly the idea of bringing in topics for discussion and getting her to ask you questions. I remember when I was having trouble talking about a particular event, my T offered to ask me questions about it to help me get the words out. It seems like a good idea.

And having sessions closer together also sounds like a very good idea. It might give you the opportunity to focus more in between sessions on what you need to talk about. That way you can make the most of the time you have left with your T.

And I think you're absolutely right about grieving WITH her, before you say goodbye.

I don't think it's possible to avoid hurting entirely. It always hurts when we feel we're in a relationship (even a therapeutic relationship) where we're more invested emotionally than the other person. But letting her know might actually help. Although it doesn't affect her in quite the same way, I think at least she will understand and try to make it easier for you. She will definitely miss you and miss the therapy you've done together.

I hope your remaining sessions go well, and give you something sweet to remember.

Tamar
