okay so i have to admit that i've been following in bits and pieces so i don't really know the full story... but...

> We talked about the possibility of having another therapist in addition to him. He said he didn't think it would be all that helpful to me, that what I was needing was the trusting relationship built up over ten years. I think he's right in a way.

yeah... but... i know that you have wondered (a little bit a little bit) at other times about seeing someone else. and about whether that might be a good thing... and about how much progress you were making with him... and i really would have thought that he'd be encouraging you to not remain so very attached to him round about now... i mean that is one hell of a long way to have to drive... and it takes up most of one day... and he doesn't know where he's going to be living... and you don't know where you are going to be living... and so it would make sense to me to have a bit of a range of supports untill things settle down a lot more and start to seem more perminant.

>Plus... Well, a lot of therapists sort of want to push to change you. And as he laughingly reminded me, it took me a while to train him not to push. I'm not sure another therapist would understand what I need.

it probably would take a little bit of time to figure out. worth bearing in mind that CBT therapists tend to be more change oriented whereas psychodynamic orientations tend to be more insight oriented...

> I dunno. All the therapists at home are probably up to their ears anyway.

but maybe not...

why don't you try and find out???
