I can see where either job difficulties or personal difficulties serious enough to lead to a sabbatical would be scary to a client. :( I'd hope my therapist would at least say enough to explain *why* he knows he'll be ok, and coming back.

Actually, mine would probably say a lot more. His boundaries on personal disclosure aren't nearly as firm as some here, and after all this time I probably delude myself into thinking he's more comfortable sharing with me because we've been through so much and so much was shared when there was really no choice.

Overall it works for me, since I'm likely to take what facts I know and weave huge disaster fantasies on them, or blame myself somehow.

I'm not sure I ever asked for disclosure though. I think I always thought if he wanted to tell me he would. I think I did always ask for disclosure about how things would affect *me*.

Isn't it strange and scary to care about someone, yet know so little about how they're doing? Because how they're doing does affect us, quite apart from our genuine human caring for them.
