Nebulae .. Hi. I think your T may have taken what has transpired very seriously (which is a good sign). I think he may be re-thinking his actions, your actions and the result. If he is seeking consultation, that is OK. Whether in private practice or not, most Ts have Ts (else they would be crazier than they are). Do not worry about who is reading what. It is not going to take anything away from you. You are much more than that.

Don't go thinking about the most negative conclusions. You do matter to him. Transference is a complex thing and even with training, may intimidate Ts when it is intense. Transference neurosis could easily get out of hand because much of it is delusional (you yourself may look back at this some day and realise times where you misread an action, or overreacted ... I was there .. I know). Countertransference is usually as strong as the transference. Therapy can be risky business.

If the T thinks the situation is becoming explosive, it may be best to terminate. How it is done is based on the experience of the T and his own hangups and weaknesses. In this case he may very well be seeking advice, which is good. It may be an acknowledgement that he may not have handled it in the manner that he should have.
