Doesn't it give therapists a lot of power if clients assume that not feeling trusting toward them indicates that the client has a 'trust issue' and needs more therapy to cure it? Maybe his behavior just really isn't conveying caring to you. Does that make your trusting mechanism faulty?

Is it a general goal for you to be more trusting in general? Why?

I could be reading it wrong but I think you are afraid that if you're insufficiently trusting that you can't be helped by therapy. And I'd take your therapist's comment (about he'd have to leave therapy if he felt that way) as adding to your own fear. But then you are in a position of having to deny your own actual feeling of caution in order to believe in the possibility of progress in therapy. Having gone down that route myself, I would not recommend it. All it leads to is dependence on the therapist, and the cognitive dissonance of trying to deny your own perceptions.
