I think it's fine, if you're doing ok and don't need therapy anymore, to call and say that, or maybe to briefly discuss the possibility of returning if you ever feel the need.

I also doubt there's any need to tell your therapist everything, if it's not related to the issue you're working on.

But some of what I'm getting from your post, and I could be totally wrong, is that you feel stuck and don't think therapy is working. And if something is really irrelevant, would there be a need to lie about it? That seems to me to have slightly different overtones?

Have the issues that brought you to therapy been largely resolved? Or at least resolved enough that you feel that therapy is no longer needed?

Only you know if it's time to terminate, or time to take a break, or time to find a new therapist, or if there is something that you haven't been ready to address. What does your gut tell you?
