Do you think you're afraid you're a therapy failure? Or is the fear connected to the things you're talking about in therapy?

I suddenly realised after terminating that I'd been afraid of my T on several occasions, and I hadn't even identified it as fear; I'd thought of it primarily as embarrassment. When I acknowledged my feelings of fear, I was quite surprised, because I'd always thought of my relationship with my T as an adult-adult relationship, but I realised the fear came from a child-place, and on reflection I'm sure it was because I was talking about events in my childhood.

Has your T passed your tests by telling you you're doing therapy right? Or might your fear stem from a transference of old feelings onto your T? If it's the latter, perhaps your fear is more about the content, rather than the process of therapy.

I hope you find ways to understand and resolve it; I'm sure your T will be able to help if you talk through with her the nature of your fears.
