I used to be certain that my therapist understood all about me and was trying to manipulate my feelings with his vast amount of knowledge and experience.

I'm not sure if I was relieved or disappointed to find out he was an ordinary mortal without any extraordinary ability to understand or manipulate me. To some extent, he was a fellow traveler on my path to wellness, who was just hopefully a bit more clear sighted and aware of where the destination might be.

Are you sure her actions are so premeditated? As opposed to an attempt to communicate with you? I must admit that I don't think my therapist ever tries to make me feel good. And while he does have certain tones of voice and postures he uses when he's trying to bring an emotional charge to the space between us, I always got the feeling it was as much to put himself on task as it was to make me respond in any given way.
