I've never participated in group therapy but i totally agree with what you say about it not having much to do with real relationships. And really, in true relationships, you're not spending tons of time analyzing what you like or don't like about someone. Maybe it's an excuse on her part for her own failings as the group facilitator. Did all of the other people in the group see her for individual therapy as well? If so, don't you wonder what she was saying to them?

Every now and then it's helpful for me to have my T review what we've done and what she thinks she can accomplish with me. I'm pretty dense about these things and I need to be reminded why she thinks that it's important that we talk about the things we do. It's similar to needing to look at the road map. My old T never did that so I really didn't have a clear sense of what his role was other than to listen to me.

Sometimes my own dim view of my future is easier to take when I know that her view is rosier. It's like her confidence rubs off on me.

It's possible that your group experiences are just a temporary set back. Can you look back over your time of working individually with this T and see some improvement, even over a lengthy continuum?
