I just remembered something funny my oldT said.

I asked him 4 sessions before terminating how long this thing [therapy] takes. He laughed and said, well, I don't think you are going to need long-term therapy, it that's what you're worried about.

And then 3 sessions before terminating, I tried to end the session early, and asked, how much longer do we have? He said well, for today, I guess we're done, but this omelet still has a few more hours in the oven

And then 2 sessions before terminating, I told him all about my childhood abuse and the flashbacks I was getting, and the way that reading my pediatric medical record had triggered me. About how hard it was to tell him about this stuff, because I'm afraid of men-- that they will physically hurt me. Lots of crying in that session. Then he gave me a referral for my newT

The last session, he said- you know- this is a long-term project, right?


I had him fooled. I think maybe he suspected I was witholding some stuff, but I don't think he had any idea that a) I was "abused" or whatever as a child or that b) I found his presence terrifying, and that anticipating my sessions was like awaiting the executioner. I'm sure he noticed my anxiety, but he probably just thought I was a scaredy cat! haha- did he know I had a complete anxiety attack one time right in front of him? I'm such an actress...

Keep in mind. oldT was a very good, very experienced T. haha. joke's on my abusers.

That's a different dance for every client-T couple. Just listen to Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra II mvmt.
