Are you using analytic technique with your clients, or a mixed approach? I think it is really interesting how therapists decide what their approach is going to be.

As far as working with a man or woman, for me the choice wasn't conscious. I had no intention of working on the csa, or of even telling - ever. I interviewed two women and then found the therapist I have now. But I have a lot of issues trusting women, I have very little faith that they can be protective or really have the capacity to hear me when I'm falling apart - so I don't with women, at least not very often. (yes, mother stuff) I've wondered if I'd chosen a woman if I'd have gone into all this stuff.

I think it is great that you are only sitting as close as you feel comfortable. You are taking care of yourself. How close is the couch? I sit on the couch (could never lay down) and my therapist sits across from me. But the distance is good and I use the couch pillows to barricade myself. Last week I consciously tried to not pull the pillows in my lap and in front of me. I was successful 3 out of 4 days!
