> Maybe I should try journalling more. This post has been helpful in two ways. First, just getting it all down in words is helpful for me. Second, getting feedback is also helpful. But I COULD get it all down and not share it and still get the first benefit. Except that it seems like a waste to write something if noone will read it. My first therapist would read all of my journalling - so the information remained private between us. My current therapist wants to *hear* it, and won't read my reams of journalling.

hi falls,

i think journaling is great, and if you're already doing it then you can see how much it helps. i come home from my sessions and write down everything that we talked about, sometimes word for word, because then I can step back and see what we did, what we've covered, and if i'm making any progress. then i also journal my thoughts in between. my memory is really bad, so it helps that i write it out, or i wouldn't remember a thing.

I never felt comfortable writing things down for my ex T, but this one has been wonderful about it. there are things i never could have expressed, i'm a lot different in writing, and it would have taken us a lot longer to cover what we've covered, but since you're going 3x per week (which i wish i could do) you probably have a much higher comfort level. it's good that you two have an understanding of how you want things to be done in therapy.
