Thanks so much, everyone, for your so supportive and heartfelt responses. I think my experience can give hope to anyone, as I really didn't improve at all with the previous analyst- and this was going four or five times a week for four years. Once I got with this new one (after a series of very stressful trial interviews with four other therapists), things began to change for the better almost from the first day. This has made me to think that if you are not improving much, and are getting discouraged, it might be very helpful to at least explore other therapists by way of trial interviews. Each one is so different, and the relationships that we are able to form with each one are really one of a kind.

Today, when we were talking about this. (I was telling him how much better I was feeling). he said, "it really underscores how important it is that patients in therapy feel 'kept in mind' by their therapists." I think that's just one good way to evaluate how you feel your therapy is going- that you do actually feel held in his/her mind.
