    I just read an interesting article that many don't think about....when it's time to leave therapy.

    I've found that ending therapy can be both exciting and terrifying at the same time. The first time I quit, I did so because I just wasn't learning anymore. I mean every issue I had I could figure out what to do.....now THAT was huge progress but I didn't want to leave because I thought I'd find an issue I couldn't solve. Then I remembered, I could always go back if I needed to.

    So every time I've left, I just talked with my therapist and set an end date. I didn't just stop going, it was also a process and I'm glad I did it that way.

    i think it's finished when you've accomplished the goals you've set for yourself.

    Or when your therapist gets too close and you start to get annoyed/scared. :hsd:

    Oh I disagree....that's when the real work starts.
