>She seems to think that they are natural developmental stages, and so the therapist should not try to inhibit acting out, for example, but should tolerate it in the expectation that the client will mature to a higher stage in due course.

That sounds right.


>For example, did your therapist tolerate your challenging behaviour, and did it eventually change into intentions that you were able to think about rather than act on?

She pointed out what she thought I was doing.
I found the level of abstraction made it a little difficult to grasp.
I think it did evolve into an awareness of my intentions, but perhaps I didn't feel it was me doing it, which is a worrying thing to say.

ie Why are you doing this? Because you can?

The thing is I would feel like an alien had taken me over, that I was subject to a force, and it would take a given amount of time to sort itself out.
The beginning of the automated process would always fill me with dread.
I was doing therapy 5 times a week and perhaps that had something to do with the intensity.
