I would agree with Dinah re a different type of therapist. My therapist is actually somewhat like what you describe. It is my reponsibility to start the session, but if I really look distraugt and am silent, he will ask what is going on with me, what is going through my mind.

He also doesn't say a lot, but when he does, it is fairly powerful--a comment on what I have said or talked about perhaps. I also know from today that he will ultimately do less and less of explaining and tying things to gether for me--only some now as I would become overwhelmed otherwise, and so his comments help contain me. I like this style, but like Dinah said, it is not for everyone. Times are I think he is angry or bored or something, and it is me projecting my stuff onto him like 99.999% of the time.

So yes, different strokes for different folks.
