I just started reading this thread, and I haven't read it all yet, but... I want in!

My T could definitely give input on saying the right thing at the right time, too, but there is also something else that comes to mind:

During my first session with her, she told me that because she's going to find out a lot of personal information about me, I should feel free to ask her anything I want to know about her life as well. I admit, I don't think I've ever actually asked her anything too personal, but it's nice to know that that option is out there. Maybe these things are unique to her, but I like how it sort of evens out the relationship, and it helps to remind me that she is a real person, too. She also never hestitates to tell me little anecdotes about her family in order to get the conversation going. We, of course, have very serious discussions, but she also never hesitates to throw in a lot of humor when it's appropriate-- I especially like how that keeps the conversation light when I'm feeling particularly untalkative.

Did I follow the topic correctly, or am I completely off-track here?
