A dependency on your T

Posted by mair on February 7, 2005, at 16:06:55

Lots of people seem to have a knee jerk aversion to the notion of a client being "dependent" on a therapist or on therapy. That was the one thing my husband cautioned me against when I started therapy. (what a joke - that was about 8 or 9 years ago) I've wondered recently whether not wanting to become dependent has actually retarded my therapeutic progress.

I'd love to hear from others as to what they see as the positives and negatives to feeling very emotionally dependent and what conversations they've had with their Ts about this issue.
