Anyone else have this experience? How did you walk through this?
I had to fire a therapist
Good for you. Everything you wrote sounds really healthy. If it comes up, I think it would be fair (and possibly therapeutic) to tell your therapist how you feel about him leaving. If it were me I would stick to things like, "Your leaving brings up feelings of abandonment in me" as opposed to, "What a jerk you are for abandoning me." It sounds like you have the right approach though. I was just trying to imagine how I would handle myself in that situation.justdom wrote:I'm also going to have my last session with current therapist.
I'm thinking that if I had the courage, I probably would've fired my first one
All that to say, when switching to a new therapist don't feel like you have to take the first person offered to you. I strongly believe that you should know in the first session whether they are a good fit for you.
Having said that, you should know that delving into those emotions you keep brushing up against is GOING. TO. SUCK.
I've prided myself of always being 'in control',
