Pointing out things we don't like

> How are you dealing with your therapist's tendency to talk about himself?

Just waiting until he's done talking, then asking to change the subject. I don't know if he's caught on yet that I think he enjoys blabbing about himself a bit too much. Once I know him a little better, I'll point it out, I'm sure. Then I'm guessing we'll have a big discussion about transference and projection. ;-) But so far, he seems willing to own up to stuff, so I'm hopeful.

It's always hard to point out these things we don't like. Even (especially) if we know them well and have a good relationship. I'm planning to point out another thing he does that I don't like. He sometimes leans back and puts his foot up on his other knee, which blocks my view of his face. I'm going to tell him that I need to see his face. But even that, obvious, important thing seems a bit scary to point out. But only more so if I wait, I think.
