Oh, it hurts so much!

I think my T did something similar; I felt the atmosphere was different the last couple of sessions I had with him. I felt as if he expected me to be more grown-up, and I felt like I wanted to regress; I just wanted him to hold me like a little girl. Before that my feelings about him hadn’t been anywhere near childlike!

I can understand that your T wants you to think carefully about what life will be like after termination. That he wants to point out to you some of the things you rely on him for. And that he also wants you to realise how far you’ve come (although – and I’m not intending to criticize him – the word ‘addicted’ is quite a strong one).

I think it’s quite true what Voce said: he will miss you. I would imagine that colours his approach to termination a little.


I’m sorry you feel so awful. It is awful preparing to say goodbye to someone so precious. I hope you’ll be able to talk with him about those feelings, because getting through the loss is something that really needs to be talked about before the loss.

Sending you big hugs.
