I see the whole thing somewhat differently. Leaving aside the extreme pain of separating from a therapist much before you were ready, it seems to me that you made an important change for the good during your time with your previous T.: you changed from feeling you didn't need anyone to feeling how much you DID need her- that's healthy! (pain aside) What you have been feeling is entirely usual and normal for everyone in therapy, and it's kind of a pre-condition for making real changes inside yourself- I hate to see you feeling that you are "too much" for a therapist, and beating yourself up about it. You aren't- you're just like the rest of us


I know you have an appointment with a new therapist- would it be helpful to you to interview several, and find out which one you feel the most *at home* with? It's a tremendously important, long-term relationship, and the better *fit* you get, the happier you'll be with the whole process.
