I'm sure that's also a big part of a successful therapeutic relationship. But, my guy didn't just hang a shingle. He spend five (or more) years learning how to do what he does.

I love to talk about my life with my friends, but the kind of stuff I needed to work on was not the substance that I would impose on any friendship. It would have been unfriendly to even begin.

Therapists serve a new role. One not anticipated by our social evolution, I would think.

Absolutely so.

I'm not going to be able to ignore, though, the fact that it was my therapist who helped me to see the precise effects of my atypical childhood period.

I agree with all you have said, but at least in my case, there is a lot more to it.
