It sounds as though your T is looking forward to the time when you will feel stronger, and will be able to use the couch productively, with less support from him- when you will have less need of his presence in front of you. Mine has the same goal for me- more sessions per week- and using the couch. I can do that any time I want, but I feel I'm not ready yet. He feels that using the couch has great value in helping people get in touch with the deeper parts of themselves- but he also feels that patients have to have internalized a certain amount of safety and ongoing attachment with their therapists before it can be really useful. I'm not there yet, but I think I've made some progress towards it. It sounds as though you have, too. I can't help but think- our Ts are amazingly similiar in how they interact with us, and in what they feel is most valuable in therapy. Hard, unbearable sessions notwithstanding, I think we are awfully lucky to have found therapists like this.
