I'd be furious that he listened to your mother's paranoia and changed because of it. You're not a minor. It's none of your mother's business really.
And you were honest with him, and this is the result. What an inducement to be honest with him. :(
I understand his concerns, having had this happen before. But he was cleared last time, I assume. And accepting a certain amount of risk is part of his career choice.
Maybe I'm being overly negative because of my very strong feelings about having my sessions recorded in any way. I don't even like his making notes of more than a few words. I would hate being recorded. I say some pretty idiotic things in therapy, because I know I'm free to say idiotic things in therapy. I wouldn't feel free to do that if I were being taped.
So maybe I'm projecting that part on you, and you don't feel nearly as bad about it. I know lots of clients agree to being taped and don't mind it at all.
I'm so sorry, Sunny, that his fears have led your therapy to change.
