I think I meant that, even if he is going to challenge you, he should still be careful of your feelings. My T will push me sometimes but also include lots of statements that clarify *why* he is saying what he is saying, makes absolutely sure I know what he means, and will stop if I can't handle it. (that's when he's at his best - there are plenty of times he forgets or chooses not to do that... I don't like that as much). I think being pushed and challenged is definitely part of successful therapy, but it shouldn't be done in a way that feels unsafe or threatening. There's been enough of that already. We need to feel held at the same time we are being challenged.
