Exactly. I have a punitive enough conscience as it is. And if I was slacking off on telling myself those things, there are those in my life who'd be happy to assist me. I don't need to pay my therapist to do it.

I don't see where it's a terribly effective intervention. I wonder if it is helpful for *some* patients.

By the way, is that Rational Emotive (or Emotion or something) Therapy? RET? If I'm remembering correctly that once concentrates on doing the right thing to feel better. But I may not be, I'll look it up. Whatever you find out his orientation is, you might want to do an internet search and see if it sounds helpful to you.

Mine is a rather short term CBT therapist for the most part. But I don't think he'd go so far as to put a time estimate on it. I asked him the other day if I was seeing him under false pretenses. I came in with pretty standard anxiety disorder which should have responded well to CBT in a few months. And here I am years later. He told me that he had always thought I would benefit from long term therapy, and congratulated me for having the courage to do the hard work. Well, I don't know how honest he was being, but it was nice to have another of those self blaming worries out of my mind.
