I like your what-if. It sounds like you can imagine him caring about you in a way that’s new, and I really think there’s the possibility of change. I think the really important thing is that if you assume he cares about you then he will be more able to demonstrate that he cares about you.

I reckon for sure he thinks about you between your sessions. I don’t think it’s the kind of job that people can switch off when they’re not there in the moment. I’m a teacher, and I think a lot about my students when I plan my teaching. I decide how to explain stuff on the basis of their interests (which emerge in class). How much more with therapy, when you’re in a one-to-one situation!

I also think it might be a good idea to tell him about this what-if. Maybe you want to try it out for yourself for a while first… but I bet it would be a productive discussion to have eventually.
