major pain from Therapy

Posted by deerock on July 20, 2009, at 9:24:07

hello, i feel like i have turned my therapist into my mother. i desperately want her approval. i feel like ive gotten worse and want to leave. she says she is fine with it. but i want her to really approve of my leaving. we also are in the midst of some really deep work. we starting talking about erotic transference and some things from my past that are very painful. i feel much worse when we talk about this stuff. i told her i wanted a therapist who would be less focused on the past and more focused on present moment and on making different choices. it seems like this could be less painful and a more direct path to being well. she said im welcome to try it. the person i want to see is kind of like a coach, with gestalt training. the idea of leaving her is paralyzing. im so scared to leave her. im not sure, is this how its supposed to be?
