>my issues with body image, femininity and my fear of being 'just like my mother'

I'm assuming some of that is to do with ageing, and some of that is about character?

You wrote to your T, which means you wanted to approach the subject, for whatever reason.
But when he wanted you to talk about it you felt embarrassed and prudish, and now you feel embarrassed for feeling like that.

Perhaps you have very good reasons for feeling reluctant to discuss this?
It's important to find something in your intuition/experience that you can trust, don't you think?
(But finding it is the problem. Maybe it's a bit like finding your voice?)

Especially (I think) if you have had family relationships that have been invalidating.

I had a middle aged female T and that was nice in that there were none of those awful man-to-man exchanges that make for feelings of bad faith.
I didn't give her too much of the salacious stuff, and when I did she was pretty good at paraphrasing.
