My therapist is incredibly open to feedback and really encourages me to tell him what works and what doesn't work. Although I don't like telling him what works because then he overdoes it and it feels forced. :) He also tells me it's ok to be mad at him about something, throw a pillow at him, etc. (although he's said I'm the only one that he'd probably be ok with throwing something at him since I never get angry). He really if he senses I'm the least bit unhappy with something he's done he tries to pull it out of me.

And he's getting to know what bugs me, and he's said sometimes that he won't not bring certain topics up because we shouldn't have things we 'can't' talk about, but that it's not because he doesn't care how I'm feeling and he does realize how it will affect me, etc.

I think any T worth their salt should be open to feedback. I think it can be a valuable source of information about the client to know what they find helpful or not, if nothing else!
