My T said something similar but more nuanced. He said I could have come as far with any skilled therapist with whom I could forge a strong connection. But how many skillful therapists are out there with whom you can personally form a strong bond? I interviewed 4 T's when I started and knew, as soon as I saw the first one, that he was right for me. The other interviews were pro forma. I just didn't want to jump at the first thing that came along.

> A therapist once said something interesting to me - he said that the outcome of therapy would be the same, whoever I worked with, but the process would be different. In other words, you will become the individual you need to become through therapy, as long as you have a good enough therapist. I've often wondered about that, and suspect that it's not so simple. I think the relationship is actually very important, although it needn't be about liking the therapist. A negative transference can perhaps be just as, if not more effective.
