Thanks for all the responses. The consensus seems to be that it's better to be direct, so I think that's what I'm going to try to do--though I can almost guarantee that I won't have the nerve once I'm actually sitting across from him. It's still so tempting to cancel, mostly just to see how he'd respond--to see if he's the type of therapist who'd be concerned and call, or if he's the type who'd think nothing of it. I hadn't really initially construed canceling in these terms--as a 'test'. I mean, I'd thought of it as a way to prove a point, or as a way to 'misbehave'--but not explicitly as an experiment in learning about his methods as a therapist. From this perspective, admittedly, it seems sort of useful, though it's probably the case that the harms still outweigh the benefits.
