> I think Daisy's post is wonderful. Sounds like a good way to evaluate therapy and to make changes, including leaving if that's the right one for you.

I agree

> And therapy does feel bad sometimes. I try to forewarn some of my clients that they may leave feeling worse than they came in, and that's okay in that it means that something is happening in therapy. I also tell them that if it feels bad to the point that it's interfering with their daily functioning, or if the feeling bad after a session lingers throughout the week, please tell me. That may mean that we need to ease back, dig deeper, or also work on some soothing, etc.

I think thats wonderful you do that. I mentioned concern to mine once about feeling really empty after a session and he said, you shouldn't feel that way so Im sure you will be fine. This was before we were about to get into something heavy... so I didn't go back for awhile, because the mere discussion of discussing it, made me feel terrible as well as the lack of insight as to how I might feel afterwards. I use to think this guy was great!

> It all depends on the client and the T. Not a helpful answer, I know. But do talk to him about it, even if it's in a final session. And I also agree that increasing sessions can help, but it doesn't sound all that appealing when you're feeling bad.

no, it doesn't, but I do undderstand the theory behind it. I think that's it, the t and the client, I don't think I allow myself to be in a realaxed state ever when Im with a t. Maybe Im terrrified of the power they have, or could have.

> Whatever you decide, I'm sure it will be the right thing for you.
