Although some people see it as such (like me periodically), going to a T is not the same as going to a confessional. You are under no moral or ethical obligation to confess anything to your T. One time I told my old T that I needed some time off. I wanted to see how far I could fly on my own. She was very agreeable to the arrangement and explained to me that not all therapy is one big stretch of sessions and then it is over. For some people taking time off and coming back works better. The time off can be weeks, months or years. During that time if you decide you want to formally "terminate" therapy, you can. But you can always change your mind and go back too.Even if you decide to terminate. If you do decide to terminate and not take time off, go in and have a talk. You can end it that day or take as many sessions as you need to say "goodbye". But don't use your termination sessions to make confessions or get counseling on new or existing issues. Terminating therapy is about just that. So use the time wisely so you have no regrets. Just my 2 cents.
