Hi Maxime,

I've had e-mail contact with my T since the first session, and I think it's a standard means of contact for him besides phone.

I've found it useful as words come easier to me on 'paper' and I'm not that keen on phoning. In the first months I sent him lengthy texts which he printed and read (usually didn't reply) - this was a good way to cover a lot of ground regarding my history. However, as time has gone on, he has encouraged me to speak about the contents of the texts rather than just write - he'd ask me to 'remind him what was written'. He stressed that it was important to talk everything over in the 'therapeutic space'.

Lately, I do e-mail him every now and again - perhaps once in a week or two and he mostly replies with some advice or support. It's a good way to keep connected.
