Just wondering how do people know when to stop? I don't want to be come addicted or dependant on seeing someone for the rest of my life. Have noticed that sometimes when I don't see her for a couple of weeks become really low, but then when a couple more weeks may go by and I seem to improve. Then I see the counsellor again, and it starts off again. I feel better once I have seen her though and look forward to seeing her, she is a counsellor. She has never asked me do I need to see her again she keeps making the appointments. They are free as done through work. I am seeing her due to grief issues (my daughter died) and suicidal thoughts.
