Yes, I left out "as". I do think my T cares for me. I couldn't pour out my soul to her if I didn't think I mattered. And I agree that it is a relationship, that we both play a part in the therapy.
I do like feeling "cared for" by her. That is part of the good feelings I take away from my sessions. I know a part of me fights it too, because I get so irritated during my actual session time. But more than not, I leave feeling connected to another human. Someone understands and is understanding.
Dasiy, I do know from your posts that your T does care for you. More than any other T, he tells you, straight out. He demostrates that caring all the time. I am so happy that you found such a caring T while sorting through your past hurts and traumas.
I am glad that you are back in town. I missed your posts on this board. I hope all is well with your husband.
