I don't understand why she filled your time. Do you regularly go once a week? My T's never filled my time yet, but is forgetful, so he's decided to schedule 2 weeks ahead everytime he sees me. I would be terribly hurt too if he gave away my time.

I went through a similar phase of wanting/needing a break, and took it for 2 months. It wasn't easy, but it ended up being positive. I exercised during my ususal therapy time and read psych books. I even saw other therapists to see if I could find a better match.

I was able to endure the separation because I told myself that I could always go back when I wanted to. I finally went back because I missed my T, and felt ready to work with him again. In my case, it was good for me to go back with fresh take on everything.

The break ended up being good for me and our therapy relationship. I don't have any regrets about it.
