Oh, how lucky I feel to have escaped what you call erotic transference!

My therapist is a psychiatrist, and I live in Canada in the luxury of socialized medecine. This adds a factor that would otherwise not be there: I feel it is unethical to use health care funds that I don't strictly need, and I'm sure my shrink feels the same. There is a need for psychiatrists here, there aren't enough of them, not good ones, and mine is a very good one so is in great demand.

It would make it so much harder were I facing your situation where after "termination" I wouldn't be able to see him if I needed to. I do feel for you.

I'd love to see him as a life coach. I'd love to have a life coach.

What I've heard said of a teacher I think also applies to a good therapist: s/he makes himself redundant. I just wish it weren't so painful, but it's inevitable, according to everything everyone here has said, and according to my shrink, and everyone else.

Is it possible I won't understand the importance until I'm through it?
