I have had approx. 12 psychodynamic therapy sessions, and I am an airline crew member and qualified work place counsellor. The sessions have been VERY useful, and as I have limited days off, I have voiced with the therapist my desire to have fewer sessions, perhaps 3 per month instead of 4, in order to USE my new social confidence, calmness and absence of anxiety, and regain a social life, utilise new friendships and LIVE my life. She is reluctant to be so flexible and has postulated that this could be a resistance to therapy, or an unconscious desire to get out of therapy. This has made me feel slightly uncomfortable and think about endings and the power dynamic in the therapeutic alliance. Any thoughts?
