I'm torn. I recently gave my therapist's name to a coworker for a family member. I didn't have any reservations about this, because I don't think I've exchanged more than a word or two with the family member in my life. I'm usually not all that jealous of my therapist's other clients, unless he's foolish enough to do something that stimulates my sibling rivalry. Which doesn't happen that often. I figure they make it possible for him to stay in business, and so are a necessary evil.

On the other hand, I absolutely positively do not want to hear about my therapist from any other client. I'm sure he's different with other people than he is with me. That's only natural, since people respond to the individual. I once heard a client in the elevator speaking casually of my therapist by first name, mentioning something that he'd never told me. I'm still a bit upset when I remember that glimpse of someone I didn't know through someone else's eyes. So, if there was any chance whatsoever that any mention of my therapist might be made in my presence, I know I'd find it upsetting.

And of course, if there was any remote chance that my therapist might comment on anything that happened in a relationship between me and another client, or in any way indicate that he doesn't entirely have my interests at heart, I'd spit fire. He's **my** therapist. ****Mine!****

I can't imagine how people do Group with their individual therapists. I really can't.
