That is so lovely, you are lucky to have such a sensitive and caring T.

One of my old T's who I still miss very much gave me a gift in our last session together. I had started telling her about parts of me that I am embarrassed and ashamed of and she brought us a little box with various things in it: a crystal, a bead, a piece of turquoise, and a shell. One for each of us: A mindfulness exercise.

I have been tempted to take this box to therapy and ask my T if we could do a mindfulness exercise - but I have been holding off doing this thinking that I haven't been working with anyone who would understand.

After your post and my situation of having a new T I have decided to take the box along to our next session. I'll ask her if she knows what mindfulness is, and if so, I am going to do it. For me the box is about me being okay. Us all being okay. Acceptable and in the moment. I think that doing the mindfulness exercise with a T who understands would be like being held and accepted for me.
