I just want you to know I understand exactly what you are going through. I am going through the same thing, and it is hard. My therapist I had before this one was kind of mothering. I used to long for the hugs I got from her. Now I am working with a different therapist who is not so mothering. I find myself missing the mothering I got from the therapist I had before. I feel like crying because I miss it so much. It really sucks that a person didn't get those needs met in childhood because it is hard to meet those needs as an adult. That is one of the things I started to work on with this therapist. I hope this helps knowing that you aren't alone with those feelings. I did bring up my feelings about wanting to be mothered with both of my therapists I had. I know it is hard, but it seemed to help.
