I've been on ciprelax for a year know and I've been seeing a therapist who has made me see things alot differently, in life today as well as my past,I've benifited from the therapy really well and I'm worried know as my therapist has told me next week will be my last session,to the point I've even been quite quiet n reserved from everyone, he says that if I need any fall back for help that he can put things into place, there is still alot I haven't told him and I feel like I'm just getting settled and started and I'm so scared of not having that every week to talk to! sad

Is this therapy of the NHS - even if it is, the therapist should not spring it on you that next week is the last session. Could you not tell him/her that you don't feel that this is the right time to finish as you are just getting started. If you are paying for it, then there is absolutely no reason for the therapy to finish until you are ready.

First of all I agree that your therapist cannot possibly tell you a week in advance that he's stopping- that is very bad ethics and I really would like you to say that you are not ready. At least tell him that you do need this fallback he's talked about.

On the other hand, it sounds like you have worked well together and you actualyl see things differently. From my experience therapy has done its job when you can see things differently and deal with it better yourself. Not necessarily when you've told him everything. I've stopped long term therapy myself at Christmas and painful memories still surface but I can process them myself. I have good friends to talk to but I don't even always need to do that anymore.

If you feel you need to talk a lot more maybe you can find a person centred counsellor via a local charity, who is basically a trained, reflecting listener. This is usually by contribution only. I live in a small town and they have this kind of service in our local children's centre, in the slightly bigger town next door and in the nearby city.
