Mair, it doesn't sound like she's going to pressure you anymore. It sounds as if she took your comments to heart and is willing to *not* talk about this until you're ready. I don't think that you need to leave therapy over this.

But is there some other reason that you think you'd like to leave therapy right now? And if there is, do you have an alternate support system in place? Assuming your therapist is a good support system.

I'd talk it over with her. My therapist never liked it when I terminated over the phone. I think this is something you can work through. You need to talk to her about it to see if it is. But if you don't want to work it through, it might be instructive to figure out why. Although certainly that is a legitimate choice. We never signed up for a lifetime contract of therapy.

Well, I did. But that's another story.

(Of course, in general I think Fallsfalls is right. There's nothing they haven't heard before, they won't think any less of us for anything we reveal, and I have told my therapist all but one of my secrets now. I never regretted telling him anything.)
