Regarding T's notes, I think you may have misunderstood Dawnfawn's meaning...I think the idea was if T. pulls out our chart, or whatever they use to refresh their memories in preparation for the session, she prefers T.s do that before we come in. At least that's how I took it - sort of picturing a T. possibly reading quietly (or not so quietly!) to themselves while client sits, maybe feeling both impatient and uncomfortable as T. "catches up" from last time. Personally, I don't mind it (only happened rarely) as long as they interact a bit while doing it, and don't take forever. I'm guessing Dawnfawn may have had a different (more irritating) experience entirely.

But your comments on the other aspect of clients wanting to see notes were well taken. That topic has been addressed a couple of times before on this board, and it's always an interesting and eye-opening discussion, with all the different experiences people have had with this delicate and potentially explosive area.

Hope you keep posting. I'm sure most people truly appreciate your unique perspective. I have learned so much from GardenerGirl (and I know someone else is training to be a T., darn my memory..?!), and it's great to have to the chance to do the same with you. Your writing style is wonderfully clear and easy to follow (not that that's a requirement on Babble - thank goodness for me! :)) ---10DerHeart

(PS: Dawnfawn, please correct me if I clarified incorrectly on your behalf, and pardon me if I am really inarticulate today. I wrote an email to former T. a couple hours ago, and since then, my brain feels turned to mush as far as stringing together words is concerned.)
