It’s All Better Now

by SunraySheryl on May 24, 2010

A trend I have noticed in some couples, is that just when things are starting to get better, they feel so positive and enthusiastic that they stop coming in for sessions.

Now that can be a very good thing, if one or two sessions is all it takes to get you back on track. Not everyone who comes in for therapy has an earth shattering matter to solve.

I’m all for getting on with life, and not being a “professional client.”

(Remember people who went to college year after year–trying to figure out what they wanted to be when they grew up–calling themselves “professional students”?)

(And please don’t mistake me for rushing the person who has had serious trauma, that does take the time that it takes, and I honor that.)

Just like the role of parenting, one of a therapist’s goals is, “to work themselves out of a job.”

So that being said, sometimes people sabotage their success by quitting too soon, by not taking the time to get new patterns of relating really reinforced.

Looking forward to doing that deep and meaningful work with you in making your relationship everything you want it to be!
