I saw my therapist today for a regularily scheduled appointment and voiced my concerns about dependance. She said that she was glad that I had the guts to bring up the subject because a year ago I never could have. Then she said that she certainly does not want my therapy to go on forever because it would look bad for her professionally, she expects my therapy to go on for another year or so. She says that my extreme caution against dependance has hindered my progress because it causes me to not allow myself to be helped. She assured me that she has no plans on moving like two psychiatrists I had did, so not to worry and to put my trust in her. She said that either she or my psychiatrist (whom I consider the most compassionate guy on the face of the earth) would be there for me whenever I need them. With luck, therapy will help me to not need therapy but for now I need to give in and let her help me.

I found this to be an enormous relief. I hope your discussion with your therapist brings relief to you as well.
