Ok, I'll believe there is.

The context was definitely protecting other people from me though. There was no talk of me feeling safe or being safe.

I figured that there were a range of ways to interpret him as agreeing with me. From, on the mild side, "Yes, you do tend to be a bit intense when you allow yourself to be authentic, and people do tend to feel overwhelmed. It'd help if you learned to moderate that." to "No one could stand you in doses of longer than an hour at a time, well compensated, and with years of training and experience. Without all that you'll swallow a person whole."

But I concede that I'm not objective, so I'll consider that he meant something else, and just worded it poorly.

I don't think I'll ask him though. I mean, even if it's true, he couldn't tell me "No one could stand you in doses of longer than an hour at a time, well compensated, and with years of training and experience. Without all that you'll swallow a person whole." outright. He'd have to hide it in therapy language.
