I did do an online therapy session, but it was more of a consultation thing. "Here's what's going on with me. Are we on the right track do you think." It worked out fine, and both validated our assumptions and gave a few new insights. I didn't do anything else with the online therapist though, and still actually have an hour prepaid that I don't know how to use.

There just isn't anyone around here who does skills training. I've thought of trying to see if my therapist would let me train him enough to coach me, but honestly I don't know if he would, and I don't know if I'd want him to. I don't want to lose my comforting therapist/mommy to an authoritarian therapist/father checking my diary cards and ragging on me. I've already got a nagging authoritarian husband/father and a yelling authoritarian father/father. While I'm the rebellious and sulky child. I don't want to recreate that dynamic yet again.

Perhaps I'll try to use the skills manual on my own and just ask my therapist to help me out with my specific areas that need work. For example, identifying "myths" that I have, or suggesting homework assignments. But not having him check the diary cards. That might just be too disruptive to the therapeutic alliance. I just don't take criticism well (even when it's called something other than criticism).
