What would be the most ethical way to terminate therapy? Send a letter, leave a voice mail, or discuss it in therapy?
I would discuss this with your therapist, Janet. There may be some underlying reasons why you want to take a break. I know for me, anytime things get tough I decide it's break time.
I think this is what is happening with me. Things were so intense for a few weeks and now I have a week off and it feels like a relief. Next it will be three weeks of therapy each week and I'm scared.
I just thought of something: I never give myself credit for the things I do. I just tear myself down and beat myself up for the things I can't seem to do. Why do I do that?
