Welcome Fall Girl!
I am sure you will feel at home here in no time. :-)
I have been in therapy for the first time for about 1 1/2 years and I am getting close to termination. My T says that a client usually knows when it is time. He says that it will feel like we are just rehashing the same stuff and that it seems like they are being less helpful then before. He said sometimes you need to balance the cost with amount of helpfullness you are receiving. He said a lot of clients just take a break too, and come back in a year or two. He said he sometimes sees clients come back after 10 years for more therapy. He said sometimes we can taper off, like come once a month and then gradually taper that too.

Have you talked about this with your T yet? I think the fact that you are asking this, it might be a sign that you are ready. Well anyways, I am sure you will get some great advice here from others to help you make your decision. Good luck!
