It's just words, Jane. I happen to find therapy concepts interesting, and my therapists knows that. If your therapy concentrates on the therapeutic relationship at all, you probably discuss the same things but in different words. If your therapy doesn't "use" the therapeutic relationship, you probably don't. But that's ok, because there are all different sorts of therapies.

It's not as if we sat down to talk "boundaries". Well, ok we did today, but that was only because it was an extension of last session. Last session we sat down to discuss something else. And his thoughts were framed in terms of boundaries, because that's how he's trained. And he felt free to share those thoughts without reframing them in non-psych words because he's aware that I think in those terms as well.

And as it happens, it brought up some interesting and thought provoking observations on how I relate in general as well as on therapy and the therapeutic relationship. So it worked. Whatever works, right?
