I'm reminded of a study where the therapist and the clients all went through the same trauma (9/11?) and often the therapists were in worse shape because they had to reprocess it over and over again with so many people. How many of his clients are talking about this, I wonder?

And while I do think why we take care of our therapist's feelings would make a good thread, I think you, of all people, would encourage anyone else to be honest about what they are thinking. The therapy space is yours to sort things out. And, given that your therapist can, and does, surprise you, he might on this. He has moved himself a safe distance so it shouldn't be triggering for him. And I think if you start out with "don't tell me to move" you might have a productive session.

I respect that you know him very well. I also think that you shouldn't take care of him so much.

Just my two cents.
Daisy
