Hi Voce,
My husband was like that too for a long time. He was very possessive of me continuing to see a male T. But he didn't tell me that explicitly, but continued to tell me not to see any T.

One suggestion I can give is, perhaps to go to a woman T. Husbands seem much more accepting if their wives go to female Ts. Also your dependancy on a female T would be much less than if you go to a male T.

So talk to your fiance about going to a female T - that also maybe you can connvince him initially that you are looking for some short term support to perhaps help you with the stress of marriage or job or if you have some physical illness, maybe you can cite that as a reason why you need some support. Tell him that woman usually need more emotional support than men.

Maybe if you tell him about CBT and explain its more non-dependant approach, he might be willing.
